Abstract:
Let f be a germ (the power series expansion) of an
algebraic function at infinity. We discuss the limiting properties
of the convergent of a functional continued fraction with polynomial
coefficients for f (alternative name is diagonal Pade approximant or
best local rational approximant). If we compare this functional
continued fraction for f with the usual continued fraction (with
integer coefficients) for a real number, then the degree of the
polynomial coefficient is analogous to the value (magnitude) of the
integer coefficient. In our joint work with M. Yattselev [1], we
derived strong (or BernshteinSzegö type) asymptotics for the
denominators of the convergent of the functional continued fraction
for analytic function with a finite number of branch points (which
are in a generic position in the complex plane). One of the
applications following from this result is a sharp estimate for a
functional analog of the ThueSiegelRoth theorem. The bounds on
the incomplete quotients for the functional continued fractions of
the algebraic functions follows from thus result as well.
