Recently, Fornaess and Sibony [9] studied the Fatou-Julia theory of complex dynamics on the complex projective spaces P m . Zhang and Ren ([25]) studied the problems on C m and asked when a Julia set is nonempty? In the paper [12], we introduced our joint work on Fatou-Julia theory in high dimensional spaces. In particular, we proved an existence theorem of fixed points for holomorphic self-mappings on C m . We also obtained a sufficient and necessary condition of attractive fixed points and a sufficient condition of repulsive fixed points for holomorphic self-mappings on complex manifolds, and characterized attractive and repulsive cycles of continuous self-mappings on topological spaces.
