Dynamic structures of p-adic monomials for small primes p

Myunghyun Jung, Donggyun Kim

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We study the dynamic structures of the monomial xm over the ring of p-adic integers for every positive integer m and for primes p=2,3 and 5. The dynamic structures are described by investigating minimal decompositions which consist of periodic points, minimal subsystems and attracting basins.
