### Solving functional equation $b(x)=\int b(xy)f(y)dy$

I want to prove that given a real-valued smooth function $f$, the set of functions $b$ solving $b(x)=\int_0^{\infty} b(xy)f(y)dy$ is given by linear combinations of $x^{\sigma}$ where $\sigma$ is a ...

### Iterative roots of sine

Is there an analytical function $f(z)$ such that $f(f(z)) = \sin(z)$? More generally, an analytical function such that f applied $n$ times to $z$ gives $\sin(z)$? Is there a general theory for ...

### Solve this equation: $f(s)=P(s)\exp(Q(s))$

Let $f,P,Q$ three analytic functions. Here $P$ is a polynomial. I want to solve this equation: $$f(s)=P(s)\exp(Q(s)).$$ The unknown here are $P, Q$ and $f$ is known.

### Complex Constant and Convergent Power Series

Suppose that the function $f$ is defined by a convergent power series and suppose that $f (z + w) = f (z) f (w)$ for all complex $z$, $w$. (a) Prove directly from this assumption that there is a ...

### Solution to functional equation

I have the following functional equation: $$f(a+b)=f^{n-1}(a)f(b)+f^{n-2}(a)f^{1}(b)+...+f(a)f^{n-1}(b)=\sum_{k=0}^{n-1}f^{n-1-k}(a)f^{k}(b)$$ where $a,b$ are complex and the function $f$ is an ...

### Interpretation of functional equation of dedekind eta function

It's well known that the Dedekind eta function defined by $\eta(z) = \displaystyle e^{\frac{\pi i z}{12}} \prod_{n=1}^{\infty} (1 - e^{2 \pi i n z})$ converges for $z$ in the upper half plane to a ...

### Can we give a definition of the cotangent based on a functional equation?

I've recently learned that the cotangent satisfies the following functional equation: $$\dfrac1{f(z)}=f(z)-2f(2z)$$ (true for $f(z)\neq 0$). Can we solve this equation for real or complex ...

### Solution of functional equation $f(x)=-f(x-a)$

I have a problem with finding solution. I suppose it will be something like $f(x) =G(x)\Re(e^{\frac{x\pi}{a}})$, where $\Re$ is real part of a complex number, $G(x)$ periodic function whith period ...

### Analytic solution of a certain functional equation

Here's my question. Let $b_2$, ..., $b_d \in \mathbb{C}$ ($d$ is an integer greater than 2), and consider the functional equation $$V(z^d)=dz^{d-1} V(z)+(b_2 z^{d-2} + b_3 z^{d-3}+\ldots + b_d)$$ ...
