I have a small question:
Can one state that
f ( x ) = 1 x
is a rational function because it is the quotient between a polynomial with degree 0 and a polynomial with degree 1?
Thanks!

Yes, that is true.
The rational functions is the field of fractions of the ring of polynomials. x is a polynomial, so x 1 is in the field of fractions.

Consider the following sets of rational functions. af(x)=ax for a={−2,−1,−0.5,0.5,2,4}, h(xc)=1xc​ for c=[−4,−2,−0.5,0.5,2,4], h(x−c)=1x−c for c=[−4,−2,−0.5,0.5,2,4], g(bx)=1bx for b={−2,−1,−0.5,0.5,2,4} for b={−2,−1,−0.5,0.5,2,4}, k(x)+d=1x+d for d={−4,−2,−0.5,0.5,2,4} for d={−4,−2,−0.5,0.5,2,4}.

Let K be a field and let F = P Q K ( X ) be a rational fraction, for simplicity we denote also by F the rational function associated to the rational fraction F. It is clear that if P and Q are both even or both odd polynomial functions, then F is an even rational function and we have also that if one of the two polynomial functions is even and the other is odd, then F must be odd. Now is the converse true, I mean do we have that if F is an even rational function then necessarely both P and Q are both odd or both even and that if F is odd then necesserely one is odd and the other is even ?
I think it is true, but i don't know how to prove it, suppose that F is even then
P ( x ) Q ( x ) = P ( x ) Q ( x )
Hence
P ( x ) Q ( x ) = P ( x ) Q ( x )
But how to go from here?

Consider the following function
f ( x ) = k = 0 a k x k .
Let us say I know a k belongs to a strict subset F R .
I want to characterize the set of sequences { a k } k = 0 for which f ( x ) is a rational function in x.
Can someone point me to relevant results in literature?
