Location of Siegel capture polynomials in parameter spaces

Academic Article


  • A cubic polynomial $f$ with a periodic Siegel disk containing an eventual image of a critical point is said to be a \emph{Siegel capture polynomial}. If the Siegel disk is invariant, we call $f$ a \emph{IS-capture polynomial} (or just an IS-capture; IS stands for Invariant Siegel). We study the location of IS-capture polynomials in the parameter space of all cubic polynomials and show that any IS-capture is on the boundary of a unique hyperbolic component determined by the rational lamination of the map. We also relate IS-captures to the cubic Principal Hyperbolic Domain and its closure (by definition, the \emph{cubic Principal Hyperbolic Domain} consists of cubic hyperbolic polynomials with Jordan curve Julia sets) and prove that, in the slice of cubic polynomials given by a fixed multiplier at one of the fixed points, the closure of the cubic principal hyperbolic domain might possibly only have bounded complementary domains $U$ such that (1) critical points of $f\in U$ are distinct and belong to $J(f)$, and (2) $J(f)$ has positive Lebesgue measure and carries an invariant line field.
