this paper is to eliminate this scandal by suggesting a precise definition of a "closedform expression for a number." This will enable us to restate Questions 1 and 2 precisely, and will let us see how they are related to existing work in logic, computer algebra, and transcendental number theory. My hope is that this definition of a closedform expression for a number will become standard, and that many readers will be lured into working on the many attractive open problems in this area. 2.
