Dynamics of rational maps on \(\mathbb P^k\). (Dynamique des applications rationnelles de \(\mathbb P^k\).) (French) Zbl 1020.37026

Cerveau, Dominique et al., Dynamique et géométrie complexes. Paris: Société Mathématique de France. Panor. Synth. 8, 97-185 (1999).
The paper surveys the theory of iterations of rational maps of the complex projective space \(\mathbb{P}^k\). It is divided into three parts. The first part is on the dynamics of very general rational mappings of \(\mathbb{P}^k\) and develops the basic notions (periodic points, critical set, Fatou and Julia sets). The invariant Green current \(T\) and its basic properties are given. Part two studies regular polynomial automorphisms of \(\mathbb{C}^k\) (generalized Hénon mappings). The last chapter treats holomorphic mappings of \(\mathbb{C}^k\) and the author surveys results by himself, Fomaes, Ueda, Duval, Brient, etc. The paper concludes with a consistent appendix with basic facts from pluripotential theory.
