    Let X be a compact subset of the complex plane. Let R(X) denote the space of all rational functions with poles off X. Let A(X) denote the space of all complex-valued functions on X that are analytic on the interior of X. Let A(X) be a Banach space of functions on X, with R(X)⊂A(X)⊂A(X). Consider the problems: (1) Describe the closure of R(X) in A(X). (2) for which X is R(X) dense in A(X)? there are many results on these problems, for various particular Banach spaces A(X). We offer a point of view from which these results may be viewed systematically.
