N2 - Let f be a rational function of degree at least two. We shall prove that the Julia set J(f) of fis uniformly perfect. This means that there is a constant c∊(0,1)depending on f only such that whenever z∊J(f) and 0 < r < diam J(f) then J(f) intersects the annulus {w: cr≤| w — z|≤r}.

AB - Let f be a rational function of degree at least two. We shall prove that the Julia set J(f) of fis uniformly perfect. This means that there is a constant c∊(0,1)depending on f only such that whenever z∊J(f) and 0 < r < diam J(f) then J(f) intersects the annulus {w: cr≤| w — z|≤r}.
