Approximation and the Topology of Rationally Convex Sets Considering a mapping $g$ holomorphic on a neighbourhood of a rationally convex set $K\subset\cc^n$, and range into the complex projective space $\cc\pp^m$, the main objective of this paper is to show that we can uniformly approximate $g$ on $K$ by rational mappings defined from $\cc^n$ into $\cc\pp^m$. We only need to ask that the second \v{C}ech cohomology group $\check{H}^2(K,\zz)$ vanishes. Keywords:Rationally convex, cohomology, homotopyCategories:32E30, 32Q55
