Chaotic complex dynamics and Newton's method

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We consider one-parameter families of Julia sets arising from Newton's method in the complex domain. We show the existence of bifurcation points where zeros coalesce or change from attractors to repellors, and points where chaotic behavior occurs.
