Riccati Differential Equation with Continued Fractions

Explore the solutions of the Riccati differential equation with continued fractions, which provide a very effective function approximation toolset. Usually the continued fraction expansion of a function approximates the function better than its Taylor or Fourier series. The solution(s) of the Riccati differential equation are very diverse; they contain polynomials, trigonometric and hyperbolic functions, logarithms, and (nested) square roots.
