Along the lines of the relationship between continued fractions and Padé approximants, there is the acceleration of convergence of slowly converging series and the summation of divergent series. These generally run along the idea of computing continued fractions from formal power series. Among the various algorithms developed from this approach are the epsilon algorithm and the Lanzcos algorithm .
