## Abstract:

In this paper, we use the Nevanlinna theory of meromorphic functions and a result of Goldstein to generalize some known results in factorization and fixpoints of entire functions. Specifically, we prove (1) If \$f\$ and \$g\$ are nonlinear entire functions such that \$f(g)\$ is transcendental and of finite order, then \$f(g)\$ has infinitely many fix-points. (2) If \$f\$ is a polynomial of degree \$\geqq 3\$, and \$g\$ is an arbitrary transcendental meromorphic function, then \$f(g)\$ must have infinitely many fix-points. (3) Let \$p(z),q(z)\$ be any nonconstant polynomials, at least one of which is not \$c\$-even, and let \$a\$ and \$b\$ be any constants with \$a\$ or \$b \ne 0\$. Then \$h(z) = q(z)\exp (a{z^2} + bz) + p(z)\$ is prime.
