Some results on the entire function sharing problem

BaoQin Chen / Sheng Li
Published Online: 2014-11-15 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.2478/s12175-014-0270-2


Our main result is as follows: let f and a be two entire functions such that $$\max \{ \rho _2 (f),\rho _2 (a)\} < \tfrac{1} {2}$$. If f and f (k) a CM, and if ρ(a (k) − a) < ρ(f − a), then f (k) − a = c(f − a) for some nonzero constant c. This result is applied to improve a result of Gundersen and Yang.
