The pressure function p(t) of a non-recurrent map is real analytic on some interval (0,t_*) with t_* strictly greater than the dimension of the Julia set. The proof is an adaptation of the well known tower techniques to the complex dynamics situation. In general, p(t) need not be analytic on the whole positive axis.

The second author is supported by the Göran Gustafssons Foundation and the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation. The authors would like to thank Misha Lyubich and Marius Urbanski for useful discussions. Recently, Urbanski [10] gave an alternative proof of Theorem A based on his theory of conformal iteration systems. His ongoing project with Lyubich provides yet another approach, which uses the Lyubich and Minsky construction of hyperbolic laminations [6].
