I am interested in combinatorics, probability, dynamical systems, and various other topics.

I'd like to know more about the elementary argument based on the IVT that Christian Remling refers to. (I see how to proceed if $f$ is piecewise monotone, but does this follow from my hypotheses?)

Eric, like Todd, is 100% right. I've updated the question accordingly.

You're quite right! I wrote "$SL$" unthinkingly. I'll fix the post (leaving tracks so that your comment still makes sense to later readers).

comment Transitivity of balanced mass transport in Z
I believe that the measure that assigns mass 1 to every integer $n \geq 1$ is not equivalent under $\sim$ to the measure that assigns mass 1 to every integer $n \geq 0$, but I suspect that if I tried to write down a proof I'd need to use the uniform boundedness assumption.
