Abstract: Let $ E$ be an arbitrary compact subset of the extended complex plane $ \overline {\mathbb{C}}$ with nonempty interior. For a function $ f$ continuous on $ E$ and analytic in the interior of $ E$ denote by $ \rho_n(f; E)$ the least uniform deviation of $ f$ on $ E$ from the class of all rational functions of order at most $ n$. In this paper we show that if $ f$ is not a rational function and if $ K$ is an arbitrary compact subset of the interior of $ E,$ then $ \prod_{k=0}^n (\rho_k(f; K) /\rho_k(f; E) ),$ the ratio of the errors in best rational approximation, converges to zero geometrically as $ n \to \infty$ and the rate of convergence is determined by the capacity of the condenser $ (\partial E, K)$. In addition, we obtain results regarding meromorphic approximation and sharp estimates of the Hadamard type determinants.
