However, most real numbers are not definable: the set of all definable numbers is countably infinite (because the set of all logical formulas is) while the set of real numbers is uncountably infinite (see Cantor's diagonal argument).
The field of definable numbers is not complete; there exist convergent sequences of definable numbers whose limit is not definable (since every real number is the limit of a sequence of rational numbers).
In fact, all theorems of calculus remain true if the field of real numbers is replaced by the field of definable numbers, sequences are replaced by definable sequences, sets are replaced by definable sets and functions by definable functions.

A real number a is first-order definable in the language of set theory, without parameters, if there is a formula φ in the language of set theory, with one free variable, such that a is the unique real number such that φ(a) holds (in the von Neumann universe V).

 Definable number - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
While every computable number is definable, the converse is not true: Chaitin's constant is definable but not computable.
The related concept of "standard" numbers, which can only be defined within a finite time and space, is used to motivate axiomatic internal set theory, and provide a workable formulation for illimited and infinitesimal number.
For example, we can enumerate all such definable numbers by the Gödel numbers of their defining formulas, and then use Cantor's diagonal argument to find a particular real that is not definable in the sense of this article.

A number is definable if there exists a proposition capable of being conceived by a mind of at least human-level intelligence which is true for that number and false for every other number.
A number x is definable if, for some formal language F and associated model M, there exists a statement S(x) in F such that S(x) is true in M and for all numbers y S(y) is true in M iff x=y.
All _real numbers_ are definable and countable --- just pick any irrational number (say, pi) which is definable and any real number can be defined by how it differs digit-for-digit with pi with their place-value-positional-numeral-system (say, decimal or binary) expansion point aligned.

We call a real number x computable, if it may be described by a Turing machine T, in the sense that when T is input a number n, it outputs the first n digits (say decimal, or whatever you like) of x.
Computable numbers are also called recursive numbers (when defined through recursive functions rather than TMs) or effectively definable (as distinct from definable numbers, of which there are many more).
It's a hop and a skip to deciding that all algebraic numbers are computable, and throwing e and pi into your expressions does nothing for leaving the computable numbers.

 Personal identification system - Patent 4376279
Thus, the generation of the Offset Number is dependent upon the PAN which is assigned by the institution, the IN, which is secretly selected for a one-time entry by one or preferably more officers of the institution, and the PIN which is secretly selected by the customer.
Furthermore, for many values of m the number of binary registers required is identical for the decomposed and nondecomposed versions of the modulo m FSR as is the case for m=10.
To determine the PIN from the PAN and Offset Number is impossible, particularly due to the focusing and defocusing effects which is produced by the incorporation of FSR B, as heretofore described.

Not all definable real numbers are computable: the real number whose n-th digit is 0 iff the n-th Turing machine stops and 1 otherwise is definable but it is not computable.
One last concept, but probably the most important, is that of constructibility: a number is constructible iff it belongs to the smallest class containing the ordinals and closed under the Godel operations, the class L (the constructible universe).
Now all constructible real numbers are ordinal definable, and the converse is consistent (but it is also consistent that there exists a real number that is ordinal definable but not constructible).

 Godel's Theorems
Definability, the relation "the number n is defined by the (English) sentence s" not definable in English.
Since sentences of number theory can be coded up as numbers (the ASCII coding your computer uses does just fine), the set of true sentences can be identified with the set TRUTH of numbers which encode true sentences.
TRUTH, the set of numbers which encode true sentences of number theory, is not definable in number theory.

 Richard's Paradox
The solution to these paradoxes is usually explained as follows: they depend on being imprecise about what is meant by defining a number, or being interesting.
We are assuming that the rules T specify which strings T-define which numbers.
Let X be the set of all real numbers that can be defined, not necessarily according to some formal system, but just in some unambiguous way that any mathematically trained person could in principle understand.

 Marked orthodonic aid and method of manufacturing - US Patent 5326259   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-26)
In order to so improve a metallic orthodontic aid having an optically visible marking area that the marking is easy to apply and is also visible up to a definable number of recycling process cycles, it is proposed that the marking area be a surface of an additionally produced layer with a remelt structure.
In this case, the number of recycling process cycles after which the layer with a remelt structure is worn away is fixable by the thickness alone.
In accordance with the invention, the thicknesses d, d 1, d 2 of the layers with a remelt structure 30, 30' are chosen in the range of approximately 0.1 µm to 0.5 µm.

Obviously, the larger the number of such potential classifications, the lower the predictability that is possible on the basis of a partial assignment ("loading of training data") already achieved.
In fact, it is possible to define a fixed analytic function fi, with m = 1, for which Sk consists of all sequences of k distinct elements of R, not merely dense in Rkm, for all k; see [Sontag 1992].
The Appendix recalls the definition and basic facts about ("expra") definable functions--informally, these are functions that can be defined in terms of any 3 first-order logic sentence which is built out of the standard propositional connectives, existential and universal quantification, and which involves rational operations and exponentiation.

And that leads to the representation of every real number as not just the would-be limit of a sequence of finite decimals, but also a limit which is actually reached, so that a real number is identical with a certain infinite decimal ([26], pp189, 191).
If we were to define 'real numbers' not in terms of Platonic limits, but merely convergent sequences of rationals, as the Intuitionists have done, then we would be identifying 'real numbers' with certain functions, since sequences are functions from the natural numbers.
Even if fn(x) determines a 'real number', which function it is is only determinable from its ordinal place amongst all computable functions, not from its ordinal place amongst the real-number functions, with the result that, if the latter is 'n', then fn(x) is not a calculable function of n.

 Three beliefs that lend illusory legitimacy to Cantor’s diagonal argument
Whatever the reason, he offered an alternative argument that was, essentially, based on defining an uncomputable number-theoretic function, rather than on non-constructively postulating that a period, followed by a non-terminating sequence of the digits 0 and 1, necessarily defines a Dedekind real number.
Turing defined the “oracle” purely mathematically as an uncomputable function, and said, “We shall not go any further into the nature of this oracle apart from saying that it cannot be a machine.” The essential point of the oracle is that it performs non-mechanical steps.
By Platonically we mean it is not necessary that, given any natural number n, we have access to an effective method for calculating the n’th term of the sequence in the definition that follows.
