In overdue 1917 Pierre Fatou and Gaston Julia every one introduced numerous effects concerning the generation ofrational features of a unmarried advanced variable within the Comptes rendus of the French Academy of Sciences. those short notes have been the end of an iceberg. In 1918 Julia released a protracted and engaging treatise at the topic, which used to be in 1919 via an both impressive examine, the 1st instalIment of a 3­ half memoir via Fatou. jointly those works shape the bedrock of the modern learn of complicated dynamics. This publication had its genesis in a query placed to me by way of Paul Blanchard. Why did Fatou and Julia choose to examine new release? because it seems there's a extremely simple resolution. In 1915 the French Academy of Sciences introduced that it's going to award its 1918 Grand Prix des Sciences mathematiques for the research of new release. besides the fact that, like many straightforward solutions, this one does not get on the complete fact, and, in truth, leaves us with one other both fascinating query. Why did the Academy provide one of these prize? This learn makes an attempt to respond to that final query, and the reply i discovered used to be no longer the most obvious one who got here to brain, particularly, that the Academy's curiosity in generation was once caused via Henri Poincare's use of new release in his stories of celestial mechanics.

Example text

3) I I '(x)l, D can be chosen so that 14>(z) - xl < ~ < 1 Iz- xl on D, that is, 14>(z) - xl < ~Iz - xl· Substituting 4>(z) for z in this last inequality implies that 14>2(z) - xl < ~14>(z) - xl < ~21z - xl- Hence, continually substituting 4>(z) for z yields l4>n(z) - xl < ~nlz - xl. 4) Since ~ < 1 the convergence of 4>n(z) to x is immediate. 4) implies that l4>n(z) - xl < ~nlz - xl < r~n for all z in D.

In the next section I will discuss the principal shortcoming of Koenigs' study, his failure to develop aglobai study of iteration. However, it is important not to lose sight of the fact that Koenigs' study was very successful. He discovered heretofore unknown connections between the various strands of his predecessors' work- in particular Schröder's fixed point theorems and the study of the Abel and Schröder equations-and established a unified, rigorous local theory regarding the iteration of complex analytic functions which he then applied to.

Because his own solution of the Schröder equation utilized an entirely different approach, it is unclear whether or not he was aware that Farkas' theorem could be generalized in the manner suggested above. Koenigs, however, in remarking that a character which I have assayed to imprint upon my researches, either previous or current, is the reduction to a necessary minimum the number of diverse hypotheses which have served as the basis of the works of my predecessors [Koenigs 1884:s4], gently chided Farkas for his reliance on such a restrictive set of hypotheses.
