Nevanlinna theory for the difference operator. (English) Zbl 1108.30022
The authors consider to what extent the results of Nevanlinna theory remain valid if the derivative f ' (z) occurring in many estimates, in particular in the ramification term N 1 (r,f), is replaced by the difference c f(z)=f(z+c)-f(z)· In particular, the authors obtain, for functions of finite order, an analogue of Nevanlinna’s second main theorem in this context. In the counting function N(r,1/(f-a)) one can ignore here those a-points of f which occur in c-separated pairs, that is, points z for which f(z+c)=f(z)=a, provided c f¬0· A corollary is a version of Picard’s theorem for functions of finite order, where three values occur only in c-separated pairs. The authors also obtain a version of Nevanlinna’s famous five value theorem where points in c-separated pairs are ignored. Applications of the results to difference equations are also given. The results are illustrated by a number of examples. The paper concludes with a discussion of the results and some open questions.
