Farey curves. (English) Zbl 1035.37033

Let \(P_\lambda:z\to\lambda z+z^2\) be a quadratic polynomial, where \(| \lambda| \leq1\) be a complex number. The unique analytic function \(\varphi_\lambda\) of the form \(\varphi_\lambda(z)=z+ \mathcal{O} (| z| ^2)\) that linearizes \(P_\lambda\) on the unit disk \(\mathbb{D}= \{| z| <1\}\) is defined by the formula \(\varphi_\lambda(z)= \lim_{n\to+\infty}P^{\,\circ\,n}_\lambda(z)\lambda^n\). (In other words, under the change of coordinates, \(\xi=\varphi_\lambda(z)\), the expression of \(P_\lambda\) simply becomes the multiplication by \(\lambda\)).
The authors study the bounded analytic function \(\eta:\mathbb{D}\to\mathbb{C}\) by \(\eta(\lambda)= \varphi_\lambda (-\lambda/ 2)\), noting that \(\eta\) has radial limits almost everywhere on \(\partial \mathbb{D}=\{| \lambda| =1\}\) [see also A. D. Bryuno, Tr. Mosk. Mat. Obsc. 25, 119-262 (1971; Zbl 0263.34003), and J.-C. Yoccoz, Astérisque. 231. Paris: Socièté Math. de France (1995; Zbl 0836.30001)]. In particular, the behavior of \(\eta(\lambda)\) is illustrated on concentric circles \(| \lambda| \in\{.5,\,.75,\,.9,\,.99,\,.999,\,.9999\}\) by series of figures with the so-called Farey curves \(\eta(| \lambda| \exp(2\pi it))\).
