Meromorphic solutions of generalized Schröder equations. (English) Zbl 1012.30016

The authors consider meromorphic solutions of functional equations of the form

f(cz)=R(z,f(z))= j=0 p a j (z)f(z) j k=0 q b k (z)f(z) k (1)

where the coefficients a j , b k are meromorphic functions and c is a complex constant. If |c|>1, then any local meromorphic solution around the origin has a meromorphic continuation over . The authors prove a number of results on the growth and value distribution of solutions f of (1).

For a meromorphic function f in the complex plane, let T(r,f) denote its Nevanlinna characteristic, and ρ(f) its order of growth. Furthermore, let d:=max{p,q}1, and Ψ(r):=max j,k {T(r,a j ),T(r,b k )}. Then, for example, one of the results reads as follows.

Theorem. Let f be a transcendental meromorphic solution of (1) with |c|>1, and assume that Ψ(r)=S(r,f). Then

ρ(f)=logd log|c|·

Furthermore, the authors consider the special case

f(cz)=A(z)+γf(z)+δf(z) 2 ,(2)

where c, γ, δ, |c|>1, δ0, and A is an entire function. They show that every meromorphic solution of (2) is entire, and they give a detailed analysis on the number of distinct meromorphic solutions.
