Let $f:X \to X$ ($X \in = R^d$ ) for some $d$) be a mapping such that $f^n (x) \to x^\ast$ for all $x \in X$ as $n \to \infty$ ($x^\ast$ is unique). Can we say anything about the spectral structure of the gradient matrix $\nabla f (x^\ast)$ ? Do we know that the spectral or the operator norm of this matrix is less than one?
