We review the Clifford algebraic foundations of versions of the vector epsilon-algorithm. This involves the formation of rational approximants to vector-valued functions defined by a power series. We summarise their properties and demonstrate how a study of these algebraic constructs leads to convergence results concerning the vector epsilon-table which we apply to the iterative solution of simultaneous linear equations. The generalisation of the epsilon-algorithm to vector rational Hermite interpolants is also presented. Finally, we consider various algebraic representations for generalised inverse rational approximants and interpolants.
