I am about to take on a topic completely new to myself: Pade approximations and Pade approximants.

I am not in a class so can't go to a professor for help; this is a self-teaching thing.

Can anybody here recommend some good resources for a person who has never done Pade approximants before? Something like a "Pade Approximants for Dummies"?

I'll be searching with Google, but would also appreciate any recommendations of material you might think are particularly good for a complete newb to the topic.
