Preperiodic points for families of polynomials

### Dragos Ghioca, Liang-Chung Hsia and Thomas J. Tucker

Vol. 7 (2013), No. 3, 701–732
##### Abstract

Let $a\left(\lambda \right),b\left(\lambda \right)\in ℂ\left[\lambda \right]$, and let ${f}_{\lambda }\left(x\right)\in ℂ\left[x\right]$ be a one-parameter family of polynomials indexed by all $\lambda \in ℂ$. We study whether there exist infinitely many $\lambda \in ℂ$ such that both $a\left(\lambda \right)$ and $b\left(\lambda \right)$ are preperiodic for ${f}_{\lambda }$.
