PadeApproximant has been added to the built-in Mathematica kernel.
EconomizedRationalApproximation is now available in the newly created Function Approximations Package.
Syntax for PadeApproximant has changed from the Pade function in Calculus`Pade`:
The Padé approximant of Cos[x] about the point x=0 with numerator of degree 2 and denominator of degree 4:
This finds the diagonal Padé approximant of order 4:
To access functionality from the new Function Approximations Package, load FunctionApproximations`:
Syntax for EconomizedRationalApproximation is the same as in Calculus`Pade` in Version 5.2. Here is the economized rational approximation of degree (2,4) of ex over the interval 0≤x≤2:
