h ( φ(P ) ) = d · h(P ) + O(1) for all P ∈ P (K̄) combined with the fact that there are only finitely many K-rational points of bounded height leads immediately to a proof of Northcott’s Theorem [18] stating that φ has only finitely many K-rational preperiodic points. The situation is more complicated if φ : PN → PN is only required to be a rational map. An initial difficulty arises because there may be orbits Oφ(P ) that “terminate” because some iterate φn(P ) arrives at a point where φ is not… 

Local and global canonical height functions for affine space regular automorphisms

Let f: A^N \to A^N be a regular polynomial automorphism defined over a number field K. For each place v of K, we construct the v-adic Green functions G_{f,v} and G_{f^{-1},v} (i.e., the v-adic

Maximal ratio of coefficients of divisors and an upper bound for height for rational maps

When we have a morphism f : P^n -> P^n, then we have an inequality \frac{1}{\deg f} h(f(P)) +C > h(P) which provides a good upper bound of $h(P)$. However, if $f$ is a rational map, then

Periodic points and arithmetic degrees of certain rational self-maps

. Consider a cohomologically hyperbolic birational self-map defined over the algebraic numbers, for example, a birational self-map in dimension two with the first dynamical degree greater than one, or

The equidistribution of small points for strongly regular pairs of polynomial maps

In this paper, we prove the equidistribution of periodic points of a regular polynomial automorphism $$f : \mathbb{A }^n \rightarrow \mathbb{A }^n$$ defined over a number field $$K$$: let $$f$$ be a

Height bound and preperiodic points for jointly regular families of rational maps

This paper provides the same improvement for jointly regular family if S is a jointly regular set of rational maps, then f(P) - C where r = r = \max_{f\in S} r(f).



Canonical height functions defined on the affine plane associated with regular polynomial automorphisms

Let f : A → A be a regular polynomial automorphism (e.g., a Hénon map) defined over a number field K. We construct canonical height functions defined on A(K) associated with f . These functions

Geometric and arithmetic properties of the Hénon map

The real and complex dynamics of the H6non map 4) : Ik2--*~ 2, 4 ) ( x , y ) = ( y , y 2 + b + a x ) (1) have been extensively studied since H6non [6] showed that such maps may have strange

A compactification of Hénon mappings inC2 as dynamical systems

In \cite {HO1}, it was shown that there is a topology on $\C^2\sqcup S^3$ homeomorphic to a 4-ball such that the H\'enon mapping extends continuously. That paper used a delicate analysis of some

A system of three first-order differential equations, whose solutions tend toward a “strange attractor”, is investigated, and it is shown that the same properties can be observed in a simple mapping of the plane defined by:xi+1=yi+1−axi2,yi-1=bxi.
