Abstract:

We consider rational and algebraic representations of the fractional part of a real number generalizing the classic binary representation. We specify probabilistic problems leading to this concept, prove sufficient condition of rationality of a number and reject a hypothesis that a criterion of rationality for rational representation of a number is completely analogous to the known criterion of rationality for binary representation. We construct a rational number having a nonperiodic representation.
