Mating Siegel Quadratic Polynomials

Abstract: Let $F$ be a quadratic rational map of the sphere which has two fixed Siegel disks with bounded type rotation numbers $\theta$ and $\nu$. Using a new degree 3 Blaschke product model for the dynamics of $F$ and an adaptation of complex a priori bounds for renormalization of critical circle maps, we prove that $F$ can be realized as the mating of two Siegel quadratic polynomials with the corresponding rotation numbers $\theta$ and $\nu$.
