Transcendance et irrationalité, 1–20. Journée annuelle 2012 de la SMF.  


In this survey we present the parameterized Galois theory of difference equations, as introduced by Hardouin-Singer. The purpose of this theory is to give a systematic approach to differential transcendence, also called hypertranscendence. As an example of the applications, we explain the Galoisian proof of Hölder's theorem on the differential transcendence of the Gamma function.
