Primitive prime divisors in the critical orbit of \(z^d+c\). (English) Zbl 1329.11020
Summary: We prove the finiteness of the Zsigmondy set associated to the critical orbit of \(z^d+c\) for rational values of \(c\) by uniformly bounding the size of the Zsigmondy set for all \(c\in\mathbb{Q}\) and all \(d\geq2\). We prove further that there exists an effectively computable bound \(M(c)\) on the largest element of the Zsigmondy set, and that, under mild additional hypotheses on \(c\), we have \(M(c)\leq3\).
