Given two compact disjoint subsets E1, E2 of the complex plane, the third problem of Zolotarev concerns estimates for the ratio suplr(z)l/ inf lr(z)I, :eEI :eEl where r is a rational function of degree n. We consider, more generally, the infimum Zmn of such ratios taken over the class of all rational functions r with numerator degree m and denominator… (More)
