A criterion for potentially good reduction in nonarchimedean dynamics

Robert L. Benedetto (2014)

Acta Arithmetica

Let K be a nonarchimedean field, and let ϕ ∈ K(z) be a polynomial or rational function of degree at least 2. We present a necessary and sufficient condition, involving only the fixed points of ϕ and their preimages, that determines whether or not the dynamical system ϕ: ℙ¹ → ℙ¹ has potentially good reduction.

A p-adic Perron-Frobenius theorem

Robert Costa, Patrick Dynes, Clayton Petsche (2016)

Acta Arithmetica

We prove that if an n×n matrix defined over ℚ ₚ (or more generally an arbitrary complete, discretely-valued, non-Archimedean field) satisfies a certain congruence property, then it has a strictly maximal eigenvalue in ℚ ₚ, and that iteration of the (normalized) matrix converges to a projection operator onto the corresponding eigenspace. This result may be viewed as a p-adic analogue of the Perron-Frobenius theorem for positive real matrices.

Adelic equidistribution, characterization of equidistribution, and a general equidistribution theorem in non-archimedean dynamics

Yûsuke Okuyama (2013)

Acta Arithmetica

We determine when the equidistribution property for possibly moving targets holds for a rational function of degree more than one on the projective line over an algebraically closed field of any characteristic and complete with respect to a non-trivial absolute value. This characterization could be useful in the positive characteristic case. Based on a variational argument, we give a purely local proof of the adelic equidistribution theorem for possibly moving targets, which is due to Favre and...

Dynamique des polynômes quadratiques sur les corps locaux

Robert Benedetto, Jean-Yves Briend, Hervé Perdry (2007)

Journal de Théorie des Nombres de Bordeaux

Dans cette note, nous montrons que la dynamique d’un polynôme quadratique sur un corps local peut être déterminée en temps fini, et que l’on a l’alternative suivante : soit l’ensemble de Julia est vide, soit P y est conjugué au décalage unilatéral sur 2 symboles.

Galois extensions of height-one commuting dynamical systems

Ghassan Sarkis, Joel Specter (2013)

Journal de Théorie des Nombres de Bordeaux

We consider a dynamical system consisting of a pair of commuting power series under composition, one noninvertible and another nontorsion invertible, of height one with coefficients in the p -adic integers. Assuming that each point of the dynamical system generates a Galois extension over the base field, we show that these extensions are in fact abelian, and, using results from the theory of the field of norms, we also show that the dynamical system must include a torsion series. From an earlier...

Polynomial cycles in certain local domains

T. Pezda (1994)

Acta Arithmetica

1. Let R be a domain and f ∈ R[X] a polynomial. A k-tuple x , x , . . . , x k - 1 of distinct elements of R is called a cycle of f if f ( x i ) = x i + 1 for i=0,1,...,k-2 and f ( x k - 1 ) = x . The number k is called the length of the cycle. A tuple is a cycle in R if it is a cycle for some f ∈ R[X]. It has been shown in [1] that if R is the ring of all algebraic integers in a finite extension K of the rationals, then the possible lengths of cycles of R-polynomials are bounded by the number 7 7 · 2 N , depending only on the degree N of K. In this note we consider...
