i was thinking about tetration and came up with important questions.

for the 3rd time !!

are there meromorphic functions f(x) so that they commute with exp(x) ?

thus :

exp(f(x)) = f(exp(x))


related 2nd question :

t ( t(x) ) = exp(x) ( any real analytic t(x) )

g(x) a meromorphic function


t(x) = inverse_g( 1-fixpoint-regular-half-iterate[ exp(g(x)) ] )


related 3rd question :

q(x) a meromorphic function

t ( t(x) ) = exp(x) ( any real analytic t(x) )

1-fixpoint-regular-half-iterate[ exp(q(x)) ] = t( q(x) )



thanks in advance

regards

I'm not sure if this is important, but I think what is important is whether or not:

"For all f(x) that satisfy , there exists a unique real number t such that ."

I'm not convinced that this is always true for holomorphic/meromorphic functions. I'm sure its false for for arbitrary (or piecewise-defined) functions. I also think this would be useful in characterizing fractional iterates.

i kinda asked this question before - more or less -

see thread :

http://math.eretrandre.org/tetrationforu...hp?tid=270

yes , this is useful in characterizing fractional iterates.

and i believe it is important for some half-iterate questions , though i cant prove it to be for tetration , but im working on it.
