Schanuel's Conjecture and Algebraic Roots of Exponential Polynomials

Submission date: 15 October 2009.


In this paper we prove that assuming Schanuel's conjecture, an exponential polynomial in one variable over the algebraic numbers has only finitely many algebraic solutions. This implies a positive answer to Shapiro's conjecture for exponential polynomials over the algebraic numbers for pseudoexponential fields as well as for any algebraically closed exponential field satisfying Schanuel's conjecture.
