Any scientific career. In its simplest form, though, everyone

will use them - although they might not realise it.

### How different is the rational algebraic expressions to not rational algebraic expressions?

Basically, a rational expression would include only additions,
subtractions, multiplications, divisions, and integer powers, while
an irrational expression could, in addition, include several
additional functions, such as roots (or equivalently, non-integer
powers), exponential functions, logarithms, trigonometric
functions, and just about any other function.

### What about rational functions creates undefined and asymptotic behavior?

A rational function is the ratio of two polynomial functions.
The function that is the denominator will have roots (or zeros) in
the complex field and may have real roots. If it has real roots,
then evaluating the rational function at such points will require
division by zero. This is not defined.
Since polynomials are continuous functions, their value will be
close to zero near their roots. So, near a zero, the rational
function will entail division by a very small quantity and this
will result in the asymptotic behaviour.

### What is the rational algebraic expressions?

A rational expression is an expression that includes only
additions, subtractions, multiplications and divisions. Some of the
things that will make an expression irrational (not rational) are
square roots, higher-level roots, non-integer powers, exponentials
(powers in which the variable expression occurs in the exponent),
and common functions such as logarithms or trigonometric
functions.
