    abstract = {Given two polynomials, we find a convergence property of the GCD of the rising factorial and the falling factorial. Based on this property, we present a unified approach to computing the universal denominators as given by Gosper's algorithm and Abramov's algorithm for finding rational solutions to linear difference equations with polynomial coeficients.},
