Examples of transcendental equation are logarithm, exponential, trigonometric, and etc.... Correct me if I'm wrong. However, I don't understand what does nonlinear transcendental equation mean.

Where did you see the expression?

Note your original note describes transcendental functions. I presume a transcendental equation is one involving a transcendental function.

This is the Cayley-Hamilton theorem. Thus, every trancendental function is necessarily nonlinear. That said, I've never seen the expression "nonlinear trancendental function" until your post so I'm also curious where you learned this from.
