Here is a list of articles in the Irrational numbers category of the Computing portal that unifies foundations of mathematics and computations using computers.

In mathematics, an **irrational number** is any real number that is not a rational number, i.e., one that cannot be written as a fraction *a* / *b* with *a* and *b* integers and *b* not zero. This is also known as being *incommensurable*, or without common measure. The irrational numbers are precisely those numbers whose expansion in any given base (decimal, binary, etc.) never ends and never enters a periodic pattern. "Almost all" real numbers are irrational, in a sense which is defined more precisely below.
