### The deep significance of the question of the Mandelbrot set's local connectedness?

I am given to understand that the celebrated open problem (MLC) of the Mandelbrot set's local connectness has broader and deeper significance deeper than some mere curiosity of point-set topology.
...

### Is there some known way to create the Mandelbrot set (the boundary), with an iterated function system?

Is there some known way to create the Mandelbrot set (the boundary),
with an iterated function system (IFS)?
Julia sets can be formed by iterating the two functions $z \mapsto \pm \sqrt{z-c},$
and ...

### Dynamics in one matrix variable

Are dynamical systems
$$X \mapsto F(X)$$
studied where $X \in \mathrm{M}_n$, $\mathrm{M}_n:=\mathrm{Mat}(n,\mathbb{C})$ or $\mathrm{Mat}(n,\mathbb{R})$, and $F$ is a (properly defined ...

### When is a Newton basin fractal continuously determined by the roots of its polynomial?

Newton basin fractals are visualizations of the Julia sets of functions of the form:
$$f_p(z) = z - p(z)/p'(z)$$
where $p$ is a complex polynomial. My question is:
When is the Julia set, ...

### Periodicities of a Complex Dynamical System

Consider A function $f:\mathbf{C}^2\rightarrow \mathbf{C}$ defined as $$f_{\alpha, \beta}(z,w)=\frac{\alpha}{z}+\frac{\beta}{w}$$ where $\alpha$ and $\beta$ both are complex number.
It is easy to ...

### Is there an efficient way to visualize the bifurcation locus of this family of functions?

I have been trying to help out with this question from math.stackexchange. It concerns the family of functions:
$$f_\alpha(z,w) = \frac{\alpha + z}{1 + w}.$$
and an iteration scheme:
$$z_{n+1} = ...

### Is there a effective computational criterion to all periodic points of a rational function are repelling.

I came up with a question to know the fatou component of of some types of rational function. In some sense, I may need to give a computational criterion to existence of attracting periodic basin for a ...

### Reference for instability of Newton basins of polynomials at “separation” of a multiple root

In a previous question on MO I mentioned that I had convinced myself of the following:
When $f_p(z) = z - p(z)/p'(z)$ and $p$ is a complex polynomial, the Julia set, $J(f_p)$ is not continuously ...

### Two limit cycles which lie on the same leaf

Edit 1: For a related discussion see this MSE post
I apologize in advance, if this question is obvious:
1)What is an example of a polynomial vector field on $\mathbb{R}^{2}$ with at least two ...
