Abstract: To decide the arithmetic nature of a constant from analysis is almost always a difficult problem. Most often, the answer is not known. This is indeed the case for Euler's constant, the value of which is approximately $0, 577 215 664 901 532 860 606 512 090 082 402 431 042 1\dots$ However we know several properties of this number. We survey a few of them.
