Rational solutions of the second, third and fourth Painlevé equations (-) can be expressed in terms of logarithmic derivatives of special polynomials that are defined through coupled second order, bilinear differential-difference equations which are equivalent to the Toda equation. In this paper the structure of the roots of these special polynomials, and the special polynomials associated with algebraic solutions of the third and fifth Painlevé equations, is studied and it is shown that these have an intriguing, highly symmetric and regular structure. Further, using the Hamiltonian theory for -, it is shown that all these special polynomials, which are defined by differential-difference equations, also satisfy fourth order, bilinear ordinary differential equations.
