    Transcendental numbers

    Hi, does anyone know the symbol that represents the set of transcendental numbers? Like N represents natural numbers and Z the integers. Thanks for your help.

    I don't think there is one since transcendental numbers are a sub set of Real numbers

    You are correct that there is no specific symbol for the transcendental numbers. However, that is not because the "transcendental numbers are a sub set of Real numbers". The rational numbers, Q, the integers, Z, and the natural numbers, N, are all subsets of the real numbers as well.
