This category contains results about Rational Functions.

Let $F$ be a field.

Let $P: F \to F$ and $Q: F \to F$ be polynomial functions on $F$.

Let $S$ be the set $F$ from which all the roots of $Q$ have been removed.

That is:

- $S = F \setminus \set {x \in F: \map Q x = 0}$

Then the equation $y = \dfrac {\map P x} {\map Q x}$ defines a mapping from $S$ to $F$.

Such a mapping is called a **rational function**.
