On the meromorphic solutions of algebraic differential equations. (English) Zbl 0915.34007

Estimates for the growth of meromorphic solutions to algebraic differential equations of arbitrary order of the form (1) are obtained.
The authors consider algebraic differential equations of the form \[ P_0(z,w)\Biggl({dw\over dz}\Biggr)^n= \sum^m_{j= 1} P_j(z,w)D_j[w],\tag{1} \] whith \(n,m\in \mathbb{N}\); \(P_j(z,w)\) are polynomials in \(z\) and \(w\) and \(P_0(z,w)\not\equiv 0\); \(D_j[w]\) are differential monomials in \(w\) of the form \[ D_j[a]= \Biggl({dw\over dz}\Biggr)^{j_1} \Biggl({d^2w\over dz^2}\Biggr)^{j_2}\cdots \Biggl({d^lw\over dz^l}\Biggr)^{j_l}, \] with \(j_1,j_2,\dots, j_l\in\mathbb{N}\cup \{0\}\), for \(j= 0,1,\dots, m\). The authors call \(\nu_j= j_1+ 2j_2+\cdots+ lj_l\) the weight of \(D_j\). The weight of \[ P[w](z)= \sum^m_{j= 1} P_j(z,w)D_j[w] \] is defined by \(\nu(P)= \max_{1\leq j\leq m}\{\nu_j\}\).
