We provide a complete classification and an explicit representation of rational solutions to the fourth Painleve equation P-IV and its higher order generalizations known as the A(2n)-Painleve or Noumi-Yamada systems. The construction of solutions makes use of the theory of cyclic dressing chains of Schrodinger operators. Studying the local expansions of the solutions around their singularities we find that some coefficients in their Laurent expansion must vanish, which express precisely the conditions of trivial monodromy of the associated potentials. The characterization of trivial monodromy potentials with quadratic growth implies that all rational solutions can be expressed as Wronskian determinants of suitably chosen sequences of Hermite polynomials. The main classification result states that every rational solution to the A(2n)-Painleve system corresponds to a cycle of Maya diagrams, which can be indexed by an oddly coloured integer sequence. Finally, we establish the link with the standard approach to building rational solutions, based on applying Backlund transformations on seed solutions, by providing a representation for the symmetry group action on coloured sequences and Maya cycles.
