# Value Distribution Theory and Complex Dynamics

*William Cherry; Chung-Chun Yang*

This volume contains six detailed papers written by participants of the special
session on value distribution theory and complex dynamics held in Hong Kong at
the First Joint International Meeting of the AMS and the Hong Kong Mathematical
Society in December 2000. It demonstrates the strong interconnections between
the two fields and introduces recent progress of leading researchers from
Asia.

In the book, W. Bergweiler discusses proper analytic maps with one critical
point and generalizes a previous result concerning Leau domains. W. Cherry and
J. Wang discuss non-Archimedean analogs of Picard's theorems. P.-C. Hu and
C.-C. Yang give a survey of results in non-Archimedean value distribution
theory related to unique range sets, the \(abc\)-conjecture, and
Shiffman's conjecture. L. Keen and J. Kotus explore the dynamics of the family
of \(f_\lambda(z)=\lambda\tan(z)\) and show that it has much in common
with the dynamics of the familiar quadratic family \(f_c(z)=z^2+c\). R.
Oudkerk discusses the interesting phenomenon known as parabolic implosion and,
in particular, shows the persistence of Fatou coordinates under perturbation.
Finally, M. Taniguchi discusses deformation spaces of entire functions and
their combinatorial structure of singularities of the functions.

The book is intended for graduate students and research mathematicians
interested in complex dynamics, function theory, and non-Archimedean function
theory.

#### Readership

Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in complex dynamics, function theory, and non-Archimedean function theory.
