By using the universal Diophantine representation of recursively enumerable sets of positive integers due to Matiyasevich we construct a Z-rational series r over a binary alphabet X which has a maximal image complexity in the sense that all recursively enumerable sets of positive integers are obtained as the sets of positive coefficients of the series w-1r where w ∈ X∗. As a consequence we obtain various undecidability results for Z-rational series.
