We introduce a class of continuous maps $f$ of a compact topological space $I$ admitting inducing schemes and describe the tower constructions associated with them. We then establish a thermodynamic formalism, \ie describe a class of real-valued potential functions $\varphi$ on $I$, which admit a unique equilibrium measure $\mu_\varphi$ minimizing the free energy for a certain class of invariant measures. We also describe ergodic properties of equilibrium measures, including decay of correlation and the Central Limit Theorem. Our results apply to certain maps of the interval with critical points and/or singularities (including some unimodal and multimodal maps) and to potential functions $\varphi_t=-t\log|df|$ with $t\in(t_0, t_1)$ for some $t_0<1 < t_1$. In the particular case of $S$-unimodal maps we show that one can choose $t_0<0$ and that the class of measures under consideration consists of all invariant Borel probability measures.
The paper is a nontechnical survey and is aimed to illustrate Sarig's profound contributions to statistical physics and in particular, thermodynamic formalism for countable Markov shifts. I will discuss some of Sarig's work on characterization of existence of Gibbs measures, existence and uniqueness of equilibrium states as well as phase transitions for Markov shifts on a countable set of states.
This paper is a nontechnical survey and aims to illustrate Dolgopyat's profound contributions to smooth ergodic theory. I will discuss some of Dolgopyat's work on partial hyperbolicity and nonuniform hyperbolicity with emphasis on the interaction between the two-the class of dynamical systems with mixed hyperbolicity. On one hand, this includes uniformly partially hyperbolic diffeomorphisms with nonzero Lyapunov exponents in the center direction. The study of their ergodic properties has provided an alternative approach to the Pugh-Shub stable ergodicity theory for both conservative and dissipative systems. On the other hand, ideas of mixed hyperbolicity have been used in constructing volume-preserving diffeomorphisms with nonzero Lyapunov exponents on any manifold.
This is a survey-type article whose goal is to review some recent developments in studying the genericity problem for non-uniformly hyperbolic dynamical systems with discrete time on compact smooth manifolds. We discuss both cases of systems which are conservative (preserve the Riemannian volume) and dissipative (possess hyperbolic attractors). We also consider the problem of coexistence of hyperbolic and regular behaviour.
We establish stable ergodicity of diffeomorphisms with partially hyperbolic attractors whose Lyapunov exponents along the central direction are all negative with respect to invariant SRB-measures.
We provide a general mechanism for obtaining uniform information from pointwise data. For instance, a diffeomorphism of a compact Riemannian manifold with pointwise expanding and contracting continuous invariant cone families is an Anosov diffeomorphism, i.e., the entire manifold is uniformly hyperbolic.
