**On a ppp-adic Julia set

V. A. Dremov

Non-Archimedean dynamical systems have recently become the subject of intense study; see,

for example, [1]. In this note we consider the class of dynamical systems of the form x → x

on the set of p-adic numbers. We will study the structure of the Julia set, deﬁned for these systems

by analogy with the classical case, and describe the action on it of our map, which reduces to

symbolic dynamics. We prove here that all periodic points are contained in the base ﬁeld.

p-adic numbers. We ﬁx an odd prime integer p.

Qp is the ﬁeld of p-adic numbers, Zp is the ring of p-adic integers (see [2]).

If x ∈ Qp, then v(x) = k for x = p

We will be considering P

, closed and containing at least

two points. (See [3] for the equivalence of this to other deﬁnitions.)

K := |x [ xn ,→ ∞ n → ∞¦ (the map T has been chosen so that this set is not large and

coincides with the Julia set).

2. Theorem. a) J = K.

b) J is the closure of the set of ﬁnite periodic points of the map T.

Corollary 3.2. ∀x

To prove this, use the fact that v(x

Deﬁnition-notation 3.3. Using the result of Corollary 3.2, we have

∃!φ: K → |−1, 1¦

N

such that xn −

a

p

(φ(x)n) ∈ Zp.

Proposition 3.4. The map φ: K → |−1, 1¦

N

is a homeomorphism. (The corresponding space

Σ

+

and the left shift operation on it are deﬁned in [4]; see also Proposition 3.5).

Proof. Let us consider the system

|x

Here a

By induction on k, we prove that all the solutions of this system with s = k constitute a set of

the form y(k) + p

Observe now that the equation φ(x

holds for all s for an =

εn. Therefore, the limit lim

k→∞

y(k) not only exists but is the unique

solution of the equation φ(x

0

) = (ε

, . . . ). From this we deduce bijectivity. Continuity of φ

and of φ

−1

also follows from the proposition proved by induction.

Proposition 3.5. The map φ: K → |−1, 1¦

N

satisﬁes the relation φT(x) = Lφ(x) for all x ∈ K,

where L is the left shift operation, L: (ε

This proposition follows from the bijectivity of φ (Proposition 3.4) and Deﬁnition 3.3.

Proposition 3.6. All the ﬁnite periodic points of the map φ belong to K.

To prove this claim, we use Proposition 3.5 and the fact that the number of ﬁxed points of T

n

does not exceed 2

n

.

Proposition 3.7. K coincides with the closure of the set of ﬁnite periodic points of the map T.

Proof. Let us observe that K is closed, as the intersection of closed sets of the form x +p

k

Zp (see

the proof of Proposition 3.4). The fact that the set of periodic points of T is dense in K follows

from the fact that the set of periodic sequences is dense in the set |−1, 1¦

N

of all sequences.

The question of the identity of the Julia set with the closure of the set of all repelling points

of the map was considered in [3]. It was conjectured there that the two sets are the same for any

rational map. Examples to support the conjecture were also given.

Proof of the theorem. Let us ﬁrst prove assertion a).

The set K is invariant under T and T

−1

. The closedness of K follows from Proposition 3.7. To

prove minimality, it is enough to consider the restriction of T to K. We use Proposition 3.5 and

note that we can consider only closed subsets Y of |−1, 1¦

N

that are invariant under the action of L.

Then clearly ∀ y ∈ Y ∀k ∈ N ∀(a

0

, a

1

, . . . , a

k

) ∈ |−1, 1¦

k+1

(Y ÷ (a

0

, a

1

, . . . , a

k

, y

0

, y

1

, y

2

, . . . )).

But then the fact that Y is closed implies that Y = |−1, 1¦

N

.

Assertion b) follows now from Proposition 3.7.
