Abstract: Suppose R is a rational function with n poles all of which lie inside $ \Gamma $, a closed Jordan curve. Lower bounds for the uniform norm of the difference $ R - p$ on $ \Gamma $, where p is any polynomial, are obtained (in terms of the norm of R on $ \Gamma $). In some cases these bounds are independent of $ \Gamma $ as well as R and p. Some related results are also given.
