\begin{question} Is Euler-Mascheroni constant an transcendental number? \end{question}

Let $\gamma:=\lim_{n\rightarrow\infty}\left(\sum_{k=1}^n\left(\frac{1}{k}\right)-\ln(n)\right)$. The number $\gamma$ has not been proved algebraic or transcendental. In fact, it is not even known whether $\gamma$ is irrational.
