For each d ≥ 2 there exists a polynomial p with real coefficients such that the associated Newton function z–[p(z)/p′(z)] has 2d–2 distinct attracting periodic orbits in the complex plane. According to a theorem of G. Julia, this is the maximal number of attracting orbits that any rational function of degree d can possess.
