In this paper rational approximation of solutions to nonlinear optimal control problems is considered. A computational procedure is presented that makes it possible to compute a rational function that approximates the true optimal cost function. It is shown that the rational function has the same series expansion around the origin as the true solution. Finally, two examples are given that compares the new method with the power series approximation, which is a rather well-known method to find approximative solutions.
