Properties of differences of meromorphic functions. (English) Zbl 1224.30156
Summary: Let f be a transcendental meromorphic function. We propose a number of results concerning zeros and fixed points of the difference g(z)=f(z+c)-f(z) and the divided difference g(z)/f(z).
MSC:
30D35Distribution of values (one complex variable); Nevanlinna theory
39A10Additive difference equations
30C15Zeros of polynomials, etc. (one complex variable)
