# FNRationalSetNumerator

Sets the parameters defining the numerator of the rational function.

### Synopsis

```#include "slepcfn.h"
PetscErrorCode FNRationalSetNumerator(FN fn,PetscInt np,PetscScalar *pcoeff)
```
Logically Collective

### Input Parameters

 fn - the math function context np - number of coefficients pcoeff - coefficients (array of scalar values)

### Notes

Let the rational function r(x) = p(x)/q(x), where p(x) and q(x) are polynomials. This function provides the coefficients of the numerator p(x). Hence, p(x) is of degree np-1. If np is zero, then the numerator is assumed to be p(x)=1.

In polynomials, high order coefficients are stored in the first positions of the array, e.g. to represent x^2-3 use {1,0,-3}.
