The history of continued fractions is certainly one of the longest among those of mathematical concepts, since it begins with Euclid's algorithm for the great est common divisor at least three centuries . As it is often the case and like Monsieur Jourdain in Moliere's "Ie bourgeois gentilhomme" (who was speak ing in prose though he did not know he. was doing so), continued fractions were used for many centuries before their real discovery.

History of continued fractions and Pad� approximants, Springer-Verlag, 1991, 551 pp. January 1991. We report on using continued fractions to easily obtain high-accuracy eigenvalues and eigenfunctions of mathematical physics, to any desired degree of approximation. The method uses but is not limited to tridiagonal matrices.

This book is not a book on control . the matrix exponential, approximation theory (orthogonal poly nomials, Pad6 approximation, continued fractions and linear fractional transfor mations), optimization, least squares, dynamic programming, etc. So, control theory is also a. good excuse for presenting various (sometimes unrelated) issues of numerical analysis and the procedures for their solution. This book is not a book on control.
