It has been known since 1951 that every sequence of permutable **polynomials**, which contains at least one polynomial of every positive degree, is either the sequence of simple positive powers or the sequence of Chebyshev polynomi- als of the first kind, or else it is related to those by a similarity transform by a linear function. The only known infinite sequences of permutable ratio- nal **functions** were the simple powers and Stirling’s **functions**, which express tan(nx) as **rational** **functions** of tan x: otherwise only 2 pairs of permutable **rational** **functions** have been published. Many infinite sequences of permutable **rational** **functions** are constructed on the basis of trigonometric **functions** and elliptic **functions**. Many identities connect 24 infinite sequences of permutable **rational** **functions** based on Jacobi’s 12 elliptic **functions**.

We have presented a least-norm approximation method to approximate **functions** by nonnegative and increasing **polynomials**, nonnegative trigonometric **polynomials**, and nonnegative **rational** **functions**. This methodology uses semidefinite programming and results from the field of real algebraic geometry. We have given several artificial and real-life examples, which demonstrate that our methodology indeed results in nonnegative or increasing approximations. We also studied how to exploit the structure of the problem to make the problem computationally easier.

In this section we begin the task of discovering rules for differentiating various classes of **functions**. By the end of Section 3.5 we will be able to differentiate any algebraic or trigonometric function as a matter of routine without reference to the limits used in Section 3.2.

Note that the equation Q(x) = 0 is sometimes hard to solve, or only the real roots can be easily found (when they are integral or rational they can be found by Ruffini’s rule, or just by[r]

2 Preliminaries
A polynomial in one variable is an expression of finite length constructed from real constants and non-negative powers of the variable via addition and multiplication. A **rational** function is the quotient of two **polynomials**, where the denominator is not the zero polynomial. Much like for **rational** numbers, we wish to identify certain **rational** **functions** as the same. We define a relation on the set of all **rational** **functions** by saying two **rational** **functions** are related if their values differ on at most a finite number of points. Thus in essence we say two **rational** **functions** are related if one can be algebraically manipulated into the other. This relation is clearly reflexive, symmetric and transitive and so is an equivalence relation on the set of **rational** **functions**.

In this section, we discuss techniques that can be used to find the real zeros of a poly- nomial function. Recall that if r is a real zero of a polynomial function then is an x-intercept of the graph of and r is a solution of the equation For polynomial and **rational** **functions**, we have seen the importance of the zeros for graphing. In most cases, however, the zeros of a polynomial function are dif- ficult to find using algebraic methods. No nice formulas like the quadratic formula are available to help us find zeros for **polynomials** of degree 3 or higher. Formulas do exist for solving any third- or fourth-degree polynomial equation, but they are somewhat complicated. No general formulas exist for polynomial equations of degree 5 or high- er. Refer to the Historical Feature at the end of this section for more information.

x 2 − 2x − 3 = (x − 3)(x + 1).
In cases which can’t be factored readily, we can turn to the quadratic formula (for quadrat- ics) or other root-finding methods for higher-degree **polynomials**, as studied in high school algebra. Sometimes a quadratic (degree two) factor cannot be further broken down (using real numbers): x 2 + 4 is such an irreducible quadratic. However, it can be shown that any polynomial with real coefficients is a product of linear and/or irreducible quadratic factors with real coefficients.

b. Since a cannot be negative and the maximum capacity of the tank is 100 liters, the relevant domain of a is 0 ≤ a ≤ 90. There is a horizontal asymptote at y = 0.6, the ratio of the leading coefficients of the numerator and denominator, because the degrees of the **polynomials** are equal.
c. Sample answer: Because the tank already has 10 liters of solution in it and it will only hold a total of 100 liters, the amount of solution added must be less than or equal to 90 liters. It is also impossible to add negative amounts of solution, so the amount added must be greater than or equal to 0. As you add more of the 60% solution, the concentration of the total solution will get closer to 60%, but because the solution already in the tank has a lower concentration, the concentration of the total solution can never reach 60%. Therefore, there is a horizontal asymptote at y = 0.6.

INTEGRABILITY AND REGULARITY OF **RATIONAL** **FUNCTIONS**
GREG KNESE
Abstract. Motivated by recent work in the mathematics and engineering literature, we study integrability and non-tangential regularity on the two-torus for **rational** **functions** that are holomorphic on the bidisk. One way to study such **rational** **functions** is to fix the de- nominator and look at the ideal of **polynomials** in the numerator such that the **rational** function is square integrable. A concrete list of generators is given for this ideal as well as a precise count of the dimension of the subspace of numerators with a specified bound on bidegree. The dimension count is accomplished by constructing a natural pair of commut- ing contractions on a finite dimensional Hilbert space and studying their joint generalized eigenspaces.

Remark 2. Let f ∈ K [x 1 , . . . , x n ]\ K . By Lemma 3 from [1], the subfield K (f ) is algebraically closed if and only if the polynomial f is closed. So, the polynomial f is closed if and only if f is closed as a **rational** function.

Abstract. The f -divergence of Csiszar is defined for a non-negative convex function on the positive axis. A pseudo f -divergence can be defined for a convex function not satisfying the usual requirements. A **rational** function where both the numerator and the denominator are non-integer **polynomials** will be used to generate universal portfolios. Five stock-price data sets from the local stock exchange are selected for the empirical study.

Abstract
**Rational** **functions** with real poles and poles in the complex lower half-plane, orthogonal on the real line, are well known. Quadrature formulas similar to the Gauss formulas for orthogonal **polynomials** have been studied. We generalize to the case of arbitrary complex poles and study orthogonality on a 9nite interval. The zeros of the orthogonal **rational** **functions** are shown to satisfy a quadratic eigenvalue problem. In the case of real poles, these zeros are used as nodes in the quadrature formulas.

First degree **polynomials** are always prime, unless the numbers a and b have a greatest common factor.
