abstract = {In this paper we discuss two theorems on meromorphic functions of Nikishin and Chudnovsky. Our purpose is to show, how to derive some well-known but not obvious results on irrationality in a systematic and simple way from properties of meromorphic functions with arithmetic conditions. As far as it stands, we have no new results on irrationality, to the contrary some results on numbers of the corollaries are known already since a long time to be transcendental (cf. [4], [9] and [10]). Our main intention lies in theorems on meromorphic functions whose Taylor coefficients are arithmetically characterized. Like Niven [6] used Hermite's method to give all known results on irrationality of trigonometric functions, we use methods going back to Nikishin [5] and Chudnovsky (cf. [2] and [8]), to give results on irrationality of values of non-elementary functions.},
