### A question on partial fraction decompositions

This question concerns the mapping from the poles of a rational function to the coefficients of its partial fraction decomposition. In general, this mapping is not injective. I want to identify some "...

### confusion about rational maps and Fatou components

Dear fellows,
I have come to another conclusion which must be wrong.
Let $f$ be a rational map and let $U$ be a connected but not simply connected open subset of the Fatou set such that $f(U)$ is ...

### Rational interpolation: Error bounds for coefficients

The following question was asked on MSE, but might be more suitable here.
Assume there is a rational function
$$
f:x\mapsto \frac{\sum_{i=0}^m{a_ix^i}}{1+\sum_{j=1}^n{b_jx^j}}
$$
of type $(m,n)$ with ...

### Subfields $k\subseteq F\subseteq k(x_1,\dots,x_n)$. Is then $F\cap k[x_1,\dots,x_n]=k(f_1,\dots,f_m)\cap k[x_1,\dots,x_n]$ for polynomials $f_i$?

Let $F\subseteq k(x_1,\dots,x_n)$ be a subfield with $k\subseteq F$. I know that $F=k(\psi_1,\dots,\psi_r)$ for rational functions $\psi_i\in k(x_1,\dots,x_n)$. I'm interested in the intersection $F\...

### Truncation error in Padè approximants

Suppose only the following data are known about a rational function $R(x)=P(x)/Q(x)$ (for $P,Q$ polynomials):
(a) the degree of $P$ is $\leq m$ and the degree of $Q$ is $\leq n$;
(b) the first $k$ ...
