Abstract.A method is suggested for treating the well-known deficiency in the use of Padé approximants that are well suited for approximating rational functions, but confront problems in approximating irrational functions. We develop the approach of self-similarly corrected Padé approximants, making it possible to essentially increase the class of functions treated by these approximants. The method works well even in those cases where the standard Padé approximants are not applicable, resulting… 

Critical indices from self-similar root approximants

Abstract.The method of self-similar root approximants has earlier been shown to provide accurate interpolating formulas for functions for which small-variable expansions are given and the behaviour

Additive self-similar approximants

A novel type of approximants is introduced, being based on the ideas of self-similar approximation theory, allowing for accurate extrapolation and interpolation of asymptotic series. The method is

Padé and Post-Padé Approximations for Critical Phenomena

We discuss and apply various direct extrapolation methods for calculation of the critical points and indices from the perturbative expansions my means of Padé-techniques and their various post-Padé

Modified Padé–Borel Summation

We revisit the problem of calculating amplitude at infinity for the class of functions with power-law behavior at infinity by means of a resummation procedure based on the truncated series for small

Self-similar extrapolation of nonlinear problems from small-variable to large-variable limit

Complicated physical problems are usually solved by resorting to perturbation theory leading to solutions in the form of asymptotic series in powers of small parameters. However, finite, and even

Optimized Factor Approximants and Critical Index

The method of analysis is both based on and inspired with the symmetry properties of functional self-similarity relation between the consecutive functional approximations, and based on expansions with only two coefficients and known critical points, a minimal model of critical phenomena is considered.

Self-similar factor approximants.

It is proved that the self-similar factor approximants are able to reproduce exactly a wide class of functions, which include a variety of nonalgebraic functions, and provide very accurate approximations, whose accuracy surpasses significantly that of the most accurate Padé approximant.

Padé approximants and efficient analytic continuation of a power series

This survey reflects the current state of the theory of Pade approximants, that is, best rational approximations of power series. The main focus is on the so-called inverse problems of this theory,

Extrapolation of perturbation-theory expansions by self-similar approximants

The problem of extrapolating asymptotic perturbation-theory expansions in powers of a small variable to large values of the variable tending to infinity is investigated. The analysis is based on

The problem of extrapolating the series in powers of small variables to the region of large variables is addressed. Such a problem is typical of quantum theory and statistical physics. A method of
