Continued Fractions for Certain Algebraic Power Series over a Finite Field
In this survey we discuss rational approximation properties of certain algebraic power series over a finite field using continued fractions. These algebraic elements are fixed points of the composition of a linear fractional transformation and of the Frobenius homomorphism.
