In this paper we continue our study [9] of the infimum of the metric entropy of the SRB measure in the space of hyperbolic dynamical systems on a smooth Riemannian manifold of higher dimension. We restrict our study to the space of volume preserving Anosov diffeomorphisms and the space of volume preserving expanding endomorphisms. In our previous paper, we use the perturbation method at a hyperbolic periodic point. It raises the question whether the volume can be preserved. In this paper, we answer this question affirmatively. We first construct a smooth path starting from any point in the space of volume preserving Anosov diffeomorphisms such that the metric entropy tends to zero as the path approaches the boundary of the space. Similarly, we construct a smooth path starting from any point in the space of volume preserving expanding endomorphisms with a fixed degree greater than one such that the metric entropy tends to zero as the path approaches the boundary of the space. Therefore, the infimum of the metric entropy as a functional is zero in both spaces.
