we develop an extremely efficient polynomial root finder based on Newtons method that turns the perceived problem of chaotic dynamics into an advantage, factorizing polynomials of degree several million in a matter of minutes rather than months and providing a family of rational maps that are highly susceptible to combinatorial analysis, leading the way for an understanding of more general maps;
