Computing the Partial Fraction Decomposition of Rational Functions with Irreducible Quadratic Factors in the Denominators
Man, Yiu-Kwong
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, v43 n6 p784-789 2012
In this note, a new method for computing the partial fraction decomposition of rational functions with irreducible quadratic factors in the denominators is presented. This method involves polynomial divisions and substitutions only, without having to solve for the complex roots of the irreducible quadratic polynomial or to solve a system of linear equations. Some examples of its applications are included.
