Abstract/Description
We consider the construction of rational approximations to given power series whose coefficients are vectors. The approximants are in the form of vectorvalued continued fractions which may be used to obtain vector Pade
approximants using recurrence relations. Algorithms for the determination of the vector elements of these fractions have been established using Clifford algebras. We devise new algorithms based on these which involve operations on vectors and scalars only — a desirable characteristic for computations involving vectors of large dimension. As a consequence, we are able to form new expressions for the numerator and denominator polynomials of these approximants as products of vectors, thus retaining their Clifford nature.
