Dynamics of tangent
We discuss the dynamics of the family of meromorphic maps z→λ tan z. The Julia sets of these maps have several interesting properties which are strikingly different from those of rational maps. For example, the Julia set is a smooth submanifold of the plane for every λ>1; for families of rational maps, those whose Julia sets are smooth submanifolds are isolated points.
