Universal properties of maps of the circle with ɛ-singularities

  • Leo Jonker
  • David A. Rand


Following the work of Collet, Eckmann, and Lanford on the Feigenbaum conjecture, we study the structure of the renormalization transformation introduced in [12] upon maps of the circle with critical points of the formx|x|ɛ.
