Numerical solution differential equation of Lane-Emden type is considered by Padé approximation. We apply these method to two examples. First differential equation of Lane-Emden type has been converted to power series by one-dimensional differential transformation, then the numerical solution of equation was put into Padé series form. Thus, we have obtained numerical solution differential equation of Lane-Emden type.
