**Publisher**: Princeton University Press 1994**ISBN/ASIN**: 0691029814**ISBN-13**: 9780691029818**Number of pages**: 219

**Description**:

Addressing researchers and graduate students in the active meeting ground of analysis, geometry, and dynamics, this book presents a study of renormalization of quadratic polynomials and a rapid introduction to techniques in complex dynamics. Its central concern is the structure of an infinitely renormalizable quadratic polynomial f(z)=z2+c.
