Camacho, C. (ed.) et al., Complex analytic methods in dynamical systems. Proceedings of the congress held at Instituto de Matemática Pura e Aplicada, IMPA, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, January 1992. Paris: Société Mathématique de France, Astérisque. 222, 407-422 (1994).
The author proves several results on perturbations of analytic maps near critical fixed points. Theorem 1 says that if \(h\) is a perturbation of a complex analytic function \(f\) having a nondegenerate critical fixed point \(\theta\) and if \(q\) and \(\sigma\) are corresponding fixed and critical points of \(h\) then \(| h(\sigma)- p|\leq |\sigma- p|\) provided \(\text{Re}((\theta- p)f''(\theta))< 0\). Applying this theorem to \(f(z)= z^ d+ (d/(d- 1))z\) and \(p= 0\) the author derives a stronger version of Smale’s mean value conjecture for perturbations of this \(f\).
