### Dense orbits for a rational map

Given a complex rational function $f$ and $z\in \mathbb C$, let $O^+(z)=\{f^n(z):n\geq 1\}$. Let $$D(f)=\big\{z\in \mathbb C:\overline{O^+(z)}=J(f)\big\}.$$ So $D(f)$ is the set of points whose (...

### Uniformization of Julia sets and lacunary series

If the complement of a Julia set of quadratic polynomial z^2+c is locally connected and simply connected, it is uniformized by the complement of the unit disk. Consider the uniformization map and its ...

### Jordan curve boundaries of Fatou components

Let $f:\mathbb C\to \mathbb C$ be a rational map and let $J(f)$ and $F(f)$ denote the Julia and Fatou sets of $f$, respectively. Let $\mathcal S$ be the set of all boundaries of Fatou components. ...

### Finding a branch cut or a branch point [closed]

Is there a way to find a branch cut or a branch point, through which a curve over a complex function goes, or in general in some region of complex function, say $\ln(f(z))$, using numerical methods or ...

### How to find the hyperbolic dimension of map $f(z) = z^2$ of $\overline{\mathbb{C}}$ onto itself?

I am reading the research article "The Hausdorff dimension of the boundary of Mandelbrot set and Julia sets" by Shishikura. In his article, he defined hyperbolic sets and hyperbolic ...

### Persistence of irrationally indifferent periodic points

I am trying to see when an irrationally indifferent periodic point persists for a holomorphic family of rational maps on the Riemann sphere. This is a question I am currently pondering after reading ...

### If I have zeros at the vertices of an icosahedron, where should the poles go?

I've been tinkering with Newton's method applied to polynomials. E.g., Newton's method for $z^5 - 1 = 0$ gives: There aren't a lot of symmetric patterns of finite sets of points in the plane, so I ...

### Locally connectedness and accessibility in $\mathbb{C}$

Suppose $\Omega$ to be a bounded area in the complex plane $\mathbb{C}$ with a locally connected boundary $\partial\Omega$, then every point of $\partial\Omega$ is accessible from Ω.Here accessibility ...

### Exponential towers of $i$'s

It's well known that the expression $i^i$ takes on an infinite set of values if we understand $w^z$ to mean any number of the form $\exp (z (\ln w + 2 \pi i n))$ where $\ln$ is a branch of the natural ...

### Convex Julia sets

Consider the classical Julia set $J_f$ associated with $f(z)=z^2+c$. Since $J_c$ is completely invariant, we know that $f^{-1}(J_f) \subseteq J_f$. Now, let $H_f$ be the convex hull of $J_f$. Is it ...

### Algorithm for computing external angles for the Mandelbrot set

Let $M$ be the Mandelbrot set: there exists a unique series $$\psi(z) := z + \sum_{m=0}^{+\infty} b_m z^{-m} = z - \frac{1}{2} + \frac{1}{8} z^{-1} - \frac{1}{4} z^{-2} + \cdots$$ which defines a ...

### Showing that a certain level set of a continuous family of holomorphic maps is locally path connected

I'm working with a continuous function $P: [0,1] \times W \to \mathbb{C}^n$, where $W \subset \mathbb{C}^n$ is an open, relatively compact ball centred at the origin. The map $P$ satisfies the ...
