We consider the random continued fractionwhere sn are independent random variables with the same gamma distribution. Every realization of the sequence defines a Stieltjes function that can be expressed asfor some measure σ on the positive half-line. We study the convergence of the finite truncations of the continued fraction or, equivalently, of the diagonal Padé approximants of the function S. Using the Dyson–Schmidt method for an equivalent one-dimensional disordered system and the results of…
