Padé Conjecture

If $P(z)$ is a Power series which is regular for $\vert z\vert\leq 1$ except for $m$ Poles within this Circle and except for $z=+1$, at which points the function is assumed continuous when only points $\vert z\vert\leq 1$ are considered, then at least a subsequence of the $[N,N]$ Padé Approximants are uniformly bounded in the domain formed by removing the interiors of small circles with centers at these Poles and uniformly continuous at $z=+1$ for $\vert z\vert\leq 1$.
