Critical orbits of holomorphic maps on projective spaces



We study the dynamics of iterated holomorphic maps of a complex projective space onto itself. Relations between the Fatou set and the orbits of critical points are investigated. In particular, results concerning critically finite maps on the Riemann sphere are generalized to higher dimensional case.
