This chapter studies complex polynomials with only one critical point, relating arithmetic properties of the coefficients to those of periodic orbits and their multipliers and external rays. It first defines the complex polynomial maps of degree n ≥ 2, and draws an alternate normal form for studying periodic orbits. The chapter also discusses the notation for the integral closure. Next, the chapter discusses several statements about periodic orbits. It then proceeds to lay out the proofs of these statements, in the process detailing some basic properties of the integral closure. Finally, the chapter closes with a discussion of the critically finite case.

Keywords:   complex polynomials, unicritical polynomial maps, critical point, periodic orbits, integral closure, critically finite case
