This volume studies the dynamics of iterated holomorphic mappings from a Riemann surface to itself, concentrating on the classical case of rational maps of the Riemann sphere. This subject is large… Expand

This article outlines what is known to the author about the Riemannian geometry of a Lie group which has been provided with a Riemannian metric invariant under left translation.

Algebraic K-theory describes a branch of algebra that centers about two functors. K0 and K1, which assign to each associative ring ? an abelian group K0? or K1? respectively. Professor Milnor sets… Expand

This note proposes a definition for the concept of “attractor,” based on the probable asymptotic behavior of orbits. The definition is sufficiently broad so that every smooth compact dynamical system… Expand

PROOF. Approximate fi, * *, fm by real polynomials F1, * , Fm of the same degrees whose coefficients are algebraically independent. Now consider the variety Vc in the complex Cartesian space… Expand

Define the growth function γ associated with a finitely generated group and a specified choice of generators {gl7 -, gp} for the group as follows (compare [9]). For each positive integer s let γ(s)… Expand
