In a series of papers, Bandt and the author have given a symbolic and topological description of locally connected quadratic Julia sets by use of special closed equivalence relations on the circle called Julia equivalences. These equivalence relations reflect the landing behaviour of external rays in the case of local connectivity, and do not apply completely if a Julia set is connected but fails to be locally connected. However, rational external rays land also in the general case. The present...

In a recent preprint [B], Bergweiler relates the number of critical points contained in the immediate basin of a multiple fixed point β of a rational map f: ℙ¹ → ℙ¹, the number N of attracting petals and the residue ι(f,β) of the 1-form dz/(z-f(z)) at β. In this article, we present a different approach to the same problem, which we were developing independently at the same time. We apply our method to answer a question raised by Bergweiler. In particular, we prove that when there are only...

We give an alternative proof of simultaneous linearization recently shown by T. Ueda, which connects the Schröder equation and the Abel equation analytically. In fact, we generalize Ueda's original result so that we may apply it to the parabolic fixed points with multiple petals. As an application, we show a continuity result on linearizing coordinates in complex dynamics.
