The concept of continued fractions os one of the oldest in the history of mathematics. It can be traced back toEuclid's algorithm for the greatest common divisor or evenearlier. Continued fractions and Pade approximants played animportant role in the development of many branches ofmathematics, such as the spectral theory of operators, andin the solution of famous problems, such as the quadratureof the circle.
