N2 - Let f be a real entire function whose set S(f) of singular values is real and bounded. We show that, if f satisfies a certain function-theoretic condition (the "sector condition"), then f has no wandering domains. Our result includes all maps of the form z {mapping} λsinh(z)/z + a with λ > 0 and a ∈ ℝ. We also show the absence of wandering domains for certain non-real entire functions for which S(f) is bounded and fn{pipe}S(f) →∞ uniformly. As a special case of our theorem, we give a short, elementary and non-technical proof that the Julia set of the exponential map f(z)=ez is the entire complex plane. Furthermore, we apply similar methods to extend a result of Bergweiler, concerning Baker domains of entire functions and their relation to the postsingular set, to the case of meromorphic functions. © 2013 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.
