In overdue 1917 Pierre Fatou and Gaston Julia each one introduced numerous effects in regards to the generation ofrational services of a unmarried advanced variable within the Comptes rendus of the French Academy of Sciences. those short notes have been the top of an iceberg. In 1918 Julia released a protracted and interesting treatise at the topic, which was once in 1919 via an both extraordinary learn, the 1st instalIment of a 3­ half memoir via Fatou. jointly those works shape the bedrock of the modern learn of advanced dynamics. This booklet had its genesis in a question placed to me through Paul Blanchard. Why did Fatou and Julia choose to learn new release? because it seems there's a extremely simple solution. In 1915 the French Academy of Sciences introduced that it can award its 1918 Grand Prix des Sciences mathematiques for the research of new release. besides the fact that, like many easy solutions, this one does not get on the entire fact, and, in truth, leaves us with one other both attention-grabbing query. Why did the Academy provide one of these prize? This research makes an attempt to respond to that final query, and the reply i discovered was once no longer the most obvious person who got here to brain, specifically, that the Academy's curiosity in new release used to be triggered by means of Henri Poincare's use of new release in his reviews of celestial mechanics.

13) f(4)(z)) = fez) + 1. The analytic iteration function would then be defined by setting ~(w, z) = r 1 (f(z) + w). The second method of solution involved the direct calculation of ~(w, z). Both of Korkine's approaches were flawed in that in each instance he assumed the existence of certain single-valued functions without providing the necessary existence proofs. 13) [1882:233]. 12)]. Therefore, since this new equation is no easier to solve than the other ... I will assay to treat the [AbeI] equation directIy [1882:235].

Although he did not explicitly say that this pointwise convergence implied that the limit was analytic, the feeling lingers that he thought this was so. 8) to the solution of other functional equations. As Koenigs noted in his introduction to [1884]: 5Koenigs' proof from [1884] is quite long (see [1884:s7-,816]). A short proof of the convergence can be found in Chapter 6 of Milnor's preprint [1990]. CHAPTER 3. GABRIEL KOENIGS 48 There exist, moreover, infinitely many functional equations to which my method extends and to which the function B(z) yields a general solution [1884:s4].

From 1879 to 1882 he studied at the Ecole Normale Superieure and received his doctorate from the University of Paris in 1882. He is often linked mathematically to Gaston Darboux (1842-1917). The historian Taton, in fact, referred to Koenigs as a "disciple" of Darboux [1980:446]. Darboux taught at the Ecole Normale in Paris until 1881, and Koenigs wrote his doctoral thesis, entitled "Les proprietes infinitesimales de espace regle," under Darboux's direction. The relationship between Koenigs and Darboux evidently evolved to a collaborative one, and Darboux appended Koenigs' "Sur les geodesiques a integrales quadratiques" to the fourth volume of his Let;ons sur le theorie generale des surfaces.
