  • We study the number of irreducible factors (over $\mathbb{Q}$) of the $n$th iterate of a polynomial of the form $f_r(x) = x^2 + r$ for rational $r$. When the number of such factors is bounded independent of $n$, we call $f_r(x)$ \textit{eventually stable} (over $\mathbb{Q}$). Previous work of Hamblen, Jones, and Madhu shows that $f_r$ is eventually stable unless $r$ has the form $1/c$ for some integer $c \not\in \{0,-1\}$, in which case existing methods break down. We study this family, and… CONTINUE READING
