 ratpolytocoeff
 compute the nth coefficient of a rational function

 Calling Sequence ratpolytocoeff(f, x, n)

Parameters

 f - rational function in x x - name; indeterminate in f n - name; index of the Taylor coefficients

Description

 • The ratpolytocoeff(f, x, n) command computes the expression for the nth coefficient of the Taylor expansion about the origin of f as a function of x.

Examples

 > $\mathrm{with}\left(\mathrm{gfun}\right):$
 > $\mathrm{ratpolytocoeff}\left(\frac{1}{1-x-{x}^{2}},x,n\right)$
