We consider formal power series $f(z) = \omega z + a_2z^2 + \ldots \ (\omega \neq 0)$, with coefficients in a field of characteristic $0$. These form a group under the operation of composition (= substitution). We prove (Theorem 1) that every element $f(z)$ of finite order is conjugate to its linear term $\ell_\omega(z) = \omega z$, and we characterize those elements which conjugate $f(z)$ to $\omega z$. Then we investigate the construction of elements of order $n$ and prove (Theorem 2) that… Expand
Roots of Formal Power Series and New Theorems on Riordan Group Elements
Elements of the Riordan group $\cal R$ over a field $\mathbb F$ of characteristic zero are infinite lower triangular matrices which are defined in terms of pairs of formal power series. We wish toExpand
Elements of finite order in the Riordan group and their eigenvectors
We consider elements of finite order in the Riordan group $\cal R$ over a field of characteristic $0$. Viewing $\cal R$ as a semi-direct product of groups of formal power series, we solve, for all $nExpand
The linear algebra of Riordan matrices
Riordan matrices are infinite lower triangular matrices determined by a pair of formal power series over the real or complex field. These matrices have been mainly studied as combinatorial objectsExpand
Jordan Canonical Forms of Riordan Arrays
We consider the possible Jordan canonical forms of Riordan arrays. We prove that there are, in fact, only two such forms. Moreover, the transition matrix is in the Riordan group only in the case whenExpand

The elements of finite order in the Riordan group over the complex field
Abstract An element of finite order in the Riordan group over the real field must have order 1 or 2. If we extend all the entries to be complex numbers then it may have any finite order. In theExpand

Reversibility in Dynamics and Group Theory
Reversibility is a thread woven through many branches of mathematics. It arises in dynamics, in systems that admit a time-reversal symmetry, and in group theory where the reversible group elementsExpand
