 Fractional iteration of x^2+1 at infinity and fractional iteration of exp bo198214 Administrator Posts: 1,386 Threads: 90 Joined: Aug 2007 06/09/2011, 05:56 AM (06/08/2011, 10:58 PM)mike3 Wrote: Anyway, I think this is not analytic at 0. The iterates of g so formed have a branch point at 0, and also a complementary one at infinity (note that if there is a BP at 0, there must be one at inf, since "circling about inf" is equivalent to circling about 0). The conjugate simply exchanges these two branch points. This would explain how it can approach $|x|$ as $t \rightarrow 0$. Well, the behaviour is comparable to that of $x^{2^t}$, i.e. x taken to a non-integer number has a branchpoint at 0,oo. There is anyway the well-known proposition that the fractional iteration of exp can not be entire. Even [1] shows that that there is no solution of f(f(x))=ax^2+bx+c in the complex plane. [1] Rice, R. E., Schweizer, B., & Sklar, A. (1980). When is $f(f(z))=az^2+bz+c$? Am. Math. Mon., 87, 252–263. « Next Oldest | Next Newest »
