Unicity theorems for meromorphic or entire functions. II. (English) Zbl 0844.30022

For part I see the author in Acta Math. Sin., New Ser. 10, No. 2, 121-131 (1994; Zbl 0806.30022).
Let \(f(z)\) and \(g(z)\) be meromorphic functions, and \(E_f(S)\) and \(E_g(S)\) denote the inverse images of the set \(S\) under \(f\) and \(g\) respectively. The author proves that there exists a finite set \(S\) with 11 elements such that for any two non-constant meromorphic functions \(f\) and \(g\), the conditions \(E_f(S)= E_g(S)\) and \(E_f(\{\infty\})= E_g(\{\infty\})\) imply \(f\equiv g\). As a special case, if \(f\) and \(g\) are entire functions, then the result answers a question posed by F. Gross [Lect. Notes Math. 599, 51-67 (1977; Zbl 0357.30007)].
