Hankel Minors and Pade Approximations

  • Eugene Tyrtyshnikov
Part of the Operator Theory: Advances and Applications book series (OT, volume 199)


Algebraic Pade theory is presented in a complete, brief and clear way as a corollary of one property of a sequence of nonzero leading minors in a semi-infinite Hankel matrix associated with a formal series.
