Attracting dynamics of exponential maps. (English) Zbl 1088.30016
Author’s abstract:
We give a complete classification of hyperbolic components in the space of iterated exponential maps \(z\mapsto\lambda\exp(z)\), and we describe a preferred parametrization of those components. More precisely, we associate to every hyperbolic component of period \(n\) a finite symbolic sequence of length \(n- 1\), we show that every such sequence is realized by a hyperbolic component, and the hyperbolic component specified by any such sequence is unique. This leads to a complete classification of all exponential maps with attracting dynamics, which is a fundamental step in the understanding of exponential parameter space.
