Second derivitive of a dynamical system
#1
Without lose of generality, set the fixed point of at zero. It is well known that . Consider that

, then

. But this gives a functional equation for a geometrical progression solved at by

This is not well-known but one requirement for uniqueness.

The idea here is that the Taylor series for an arbitrary dynamical system can be derived. The second derivitive's dependancy on a geometrical progression results in the different types of fixed points. The higher derivitives also are built up from nested geometrical progressions. The regular formula for geometrical progressions breaks down when the roots of unity are involved which gives an explaination for why therre are different types of fixed points.

That unless for some integer .

For we have .

Here is the Lyponouv characteristic - the first derivitive at a fixed point. Note that the regular formula for geometrical progressions blows up for which happens at .
