Espil's high power partial fraction decomposition theorem.

The problem of fraction decomposition it's easy to solve by using the cover up method, when there are no repeated linear factors in the denominator . Nevertheless it could turn into a hard work if these factors are raised to a high power, where the cover up method doesn't work. This technique shows how to calculate these coefficients without solving large systems of equations with a clever rearrangement of the numerator.
