## Abstract

We consider Keller's functions, namely polynomial functions f:C^{n} →C^{n} with det f(x)=1 at all x εC^{n}. Keller conjectured that they are all bijective and have polynomial inverses. The problem is still open. Without loss of generality assume f(0)=0 and f'(0)=I. We study the existence of certain mappings h_{λ}, λ > 1, defined by power series in a ball with center at the origin, such that h′_{λ}(0)=I and h_{λ}(λf(x))=λh_{λ}(x). So each h_{λ}conjugates λf to its linear part λI in a ball where it is injective. We conjecture that for Keller's functions f of the homogeneous form f(x)=x +g(x), g(sx)=s^{d}g(x), g′(x)^{n}=0, xεC^{n}, sεC the conjugation h_{λ} for λf is an entire function.
