Markov partitions and Feigenbaum-like mappings

  • Yunping Jiang


We construct a Markov partition for a Feigenbaum-like mapping. We prove that this Markov partition has bounded nearby geometry property similar to that for a geometrically finite one-dimensional mappings [8]. Using this property, we give a simple proof that any two Feigenbaum-like mappings are topologically conjugate and the conjugacy is quasisymmetric.
