Yes, "Concrete Mathematics" Knuth, Graham and Patashnik.

Hi;

I would suggest you get it straight from Knuth.

What is that Knuth idea?

Hi;

It is a Knuth idea that gAr and I were looking at for the gf of the coin problem.

Hi gAr;

You used the Knuth idea to get a smaller recurrence, very good. I am working
on a method that uses residues, it will take a while.

Knuth idea?

Yes, because the denominator only has one real pole, subtracting it off
which is somehow done with his method. This greatly increases the convergence. The coefficients depend on the singularities of the g(x).
