    Abstract: In a beautiful paper, joint with M.L. Robinson, "Legendre polynomials and irrationality", Krishna Alladi and Michael Robinson adapted Beukers' method to find irrationality measures of very famous constants. I will survey this, and also describe attempts to teach my silicon collaborator, Shalosh B. Ekhad, to use Krishna's ideas.
