 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS The function li(z) has in C two fixed points, namely z0 = A276762 + A276763*i and its conjugate. For real arguments, z = 0 is also a fixed point but, since it lies on a branch cut and has discontinuous imaginary part, setting li(0) = 0 in C is problematic. This leaves z_0 and its conjugate as the only 'regular' fixed points of li(z). They are both attractors of the mapping. The attraction basin of z0 appears to be the whole upper half of the complex plane (including the real axis, minus the singular points z = 0 and z =1), while that of the conjugate of z0 appears to be the whole lower half (exluding the real axis). The convergence is exponential but rather slow, with the asymptotic convergence factor of 0.756330... per iteration, equal to abs(li'(z0)) = 1/abs(log(z0)).
