After the pioneering work on complex dynamics by Fatou and Julia in the early 20th century, Noel Baker went on to lay the foundations of transcendental complex dynamics. As one of the leading exponents of transcendental dynamics, he showed how developments in complex analysis such as Nevanlinna theory could be applied. His work has inspired many others to take up this increasingly active subject, and will continue to do so. Presenting papers by researchers in transcendental dynamics and complex analysis, this book is written in honour of Noel Baker. The papers describe the state of the art in this subject, with new results on completely invariant domains, wandering domains, the exponential parameter space, and normal families. The inclusion of comprehensive survey articles on dimensions of Julia sets, buried components of Julia sets, Baker domains, Fatou components of functions of small growth, and ergodic theory of transcendental meromorphic functions means this is essential reading for students and researchers in complex dynamics and complex analysis.
A classical theorem of Valiron states that a function which is holomorphic in the unit disk, unbounded, and bounded on a spiral that accumulates at all points of the unit circle, has asymptotic value $\infty$. This property, and various other properties of such functions, are shown to hold for more general classes of functions which are bounded on a subset of the disk that has a suitably large set of nontangential limit points on the unit circle.
Several results are proved, related to an old problem posed by G. R. MacLane, namely whether functions
in the class [Ascr ] that are locally univalent can have arc tracts. In particular, a proof is given of an assertion
of MacLane that if f ∈ [Ascr ] is locally univalent and has no arc tracts, then f′ ∈ [Ascr ].
