PadeApproximant

PadeApproximant
gives the Padé approximant to expr about the point , with numerator order m and denominator order n.
PadeApproximant
gives the diagonal Padé approximant to expr about the point of order n.
  • Mathematica can find the Padé approximant about the point only when it can evaluate power series at that point.

For PadeApproximant gives an ordinary series:
Padé approximants often have spurious poles not present in the original function:
Padé approximants of a given order may not exist:
Perturbing the order slightly is usually sufficient to produce an approximant:
