Stable ergodicity of skew products of one-dimensional hyperbolic flows
C.P. Walkden
We consider hyperbolic flows on one dimensional basic sets. Any such flow is conjugate to a suspension of a shift of finite type. We consider compact Lie group skew-products of such symbolic flows and prove that they are stably ergodic and stably mixing, within certain naturally defined function spaces.

Solutions to the twisted cocycle equation over hyperbolic systems
C.P. Walkden
A twisted cocyle with values in a Lie group $G$ is a cocyle that incorporates an automorphism of $G$. Suppose that the underlying transformation is hyperbolic. We prove that if two Hölder continuous twisted cocycles with a sufficiently high Hölder exponent assign equal 'weights' to the periodic orbits of $\phi$, then they are Hölder cohomologous. This generalises a well-known theorem due to Livšic in the untwisted case. Having determined conditions for there to be a solution to the twisted cocycle equation, we consider how many other solution there may be. When $G$ is a toius, we determine conditions for there to be only finitely many solutions to the twisted cocycle equation.
