# Arithmetic and Complex Dynamics

The goal of sage-dynamics is to improve the open source mathematical software Sage for computer exploration in dynamical systems and foster code sharing between researchers in this area. This portion focuses on the Arithmetic (Number Theoretic) and Complex aspects of dynamical systems.

## Road Map

The arithmetic and complex dynamics functionality in Sage is currently in its infancy. A significant amount of functionality was developped at the ICERM semester in Spring 2012 and now we have started the process of moving this into Sage through a series of patches (trac tickets). Most of that functionality is current in experimental for that been greatly expanded upon at Sage Days 55. Much remains to be done. Below you will find a road map of what has been implemented, what is in the process of being implemented, and ideas for future functionality.

## Wishlist

**Wishlist**Area

Description

Difficulty

Priority

Products of Projective Spaces

Rational Points on Subschemes

Implement an efficient rational points search on subschemes. Currently it is done by enumeration unless dim is 0

Polynomials

specific functionality for regular polynomial endomorphisms of P^N

Canonical heights

implement Well's algorithm that does not require factoring the resultant

Rational Maps

Dynamical degree(s), arithmetic degree

periodic and preperiodic points (projective and affine)

Q.is_iterate_defined(f,n)

Q.hits_indeterminancy_locus(f,n)

add noramlize parameter to nth_iterate_map

Q.height_iterate_sequence

cyclegraph

Numerical Precision

implement Algorithm 4 from "Computing algebraic numbers of bounded height" by Doyle-Krumm to use in elements_of_bounded_height for number fields. This is a high priority since currently the precision has an effect on the output. Algorithm 4 is able to take precision into account.

Hard

High

use real interval field for floating point computations (in heights and possibly rational preperiodic point functions)

medium

Attracting Cycles

Check if for a given algebraic parameter c the map z -> z^2 + c is hyperbolic... and more generally for rational maps of P1 determine the existence (and list) of attracting cycles

Non-Integral Domains

Make projective space work over non-integral domains. One method would be to make a valid point on which is valid for modulo all maximal ideals

Documentation

Write Tutorials

Complex Dynamics

Implement Thurston's algorithm. More precisely, develop an efficient method to determine if there is a Thurston obstruction. (Epstein, ICERM)

Dynamical Zeta Functions

Compute the dynamical zeta function

Miscellaneous

Implement a function which takes as input to rational functions f(x) and g(x), and determines whether or not f^n=g^m for some integers n,m \geq 1. (Zieve, ICERM)

fix inheritance structure in generic/morphism/py. see tracc 14711

implement more general schemes - charts, morphisms

color code cyclegraph. mark critical points for pcf potrait. perhaps color code points in intermediate fields for finite fields

Coercion

some kind of coercion model: if you have a map defined over QQ should you be able to take the image of a point over CC (i.e. somewhere you have a well defined embedding) without having to

`change_ring()`. Something like this works for polynomials. This may or may not be a good idea, but if it can be done in a consistent manner it would improve usability in certain situations.Postcritically finite morphisms

given a number field enumerate pcf maps over that field

given a graph, find a pcf map with that graph (approximate with spider algorithm or exact?)

given a family, which members are pcf

Berkovich P1

Improve speed

sigma_invariants is currently very slow. (Took several minutes to compute 2-cycle sigma invariants for a cubic.) If we hope to use this to describe functions in the "Arithmetic Dynamics Database," then computation needs to be much faster.

Need to think about methods. Will numerical approximations go faster? Do we need to bound denominators of symmetric functions? Can we?

reduced form

Implement for higher dimensions. See Stoll 'Reduction Theory Of Point Clusters In Projective Space'
