"It is transcendental, which means that it is not the root (solution) to any polynomial of any degree with integer coefficients. This condition is more restrictive than saying a number is irrational. For example, the polynomial of degree '2', X^2 - 3=0, has the solution X = sqrt(3), which is irrational." http://www.newton.dep.anl.gov/askasci/math99/math99119.htm
