On the singularities of the inverse to a meromorphic function of finite order. (English) Zbl 0830.30016
Summary: Our main result implies the following theorem: Let $f$ be a transcendental meromorphic function in the complex plane. If $f$ has finite order $\rho$, then every asymptotic value of $f$, except at most $2 \rho$ of them, is a limit point of critical values of $f$. We give several applications of this theorem. For example we prove that if $f$ is a transcendental meromorphic function then $f'f^n$ with $n \ge 1$ takes every finite nonzero value infinitely often. This proves a conjecture of Hayman. The proof makes use of the iteration theory of meromorphic functions.
