Abstract: For the approximant of is

*f*, approximants of full grade are capable of giving good approximation both for small and large

*t*. These and other properties of full grade approximants make them particularly useful in a wide range of practical applications. The constants , of full grade approximants are generated by partial fraction decompositions of certain Padé approximants to . The purpose of this paper is firstly to tabulate the constants , for all full grade approximants for ; secondly, to give accurate estimates of their precision; and thirdly, to describe the methods of tabulation and estimation in sufficient detail to allow the results of this paper to be extended readily.
