[R] nonlinear modeling with rational functions?

      Rational functions (ratios of polynomials) often provide good 
approximations to many functions.  Does anyone know of any literature on 
nonlinear modeling with rational functions, sequential estimation, 
diagnostics, etc.?  I know I can do it with "nls" and other nonlinear 
regression functions, but I'm wondering what literature might exist 
discussing how a search for an appropriate rational approximation?
