#### Applications of Pade' Approximation Theory in Fluid Dynamics

World Scientific Publishing Company 1994; US$ 128.00Although Padé presented his fundamental paper at the end of the last century, the studies on Padé's approximants only became significant in the second part of this century.Padé procedure is related to the theory of continued fractions, and some convergence theorems can be expressed only in terms of continued fractions. Further,... more...
