Book DetailsContemporary MathematicsVolume: 303; 2002; 136 ppMSC: Primary 11; 30; 32; 37
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 nonArchimedean analogs of Picard's theorems. P.C. Hu and C.C. Yang give a survey of results in nonArchimedean 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 nonArchimedean function theory.
