It now looks anyway as if there is no Baker vs. Walker.

As Peter Walker told me, Baker introduced Walker into the topic and also read Walker's paper. So from that view it is quite unprobable that there is a contradiction.

But from the pure mathematical point of view there is perhaps also no contradiction: Walker showed that for fixed the function is entire. Baker however showed that for most fixed the convergence radius of the function (where ) is 0 at . I think that can go together.

Can you please open a new thread in the computing subforum? It is also a topic I am interested in.
