Characterization of topological entropy?

Let $V$ be a smooth Anosov vector field on a compact $n$ dimensional manifold $X$. Let $D(X)$ denote the set of distance functions $d$ on $X$ that are equivalent to fixed Riemannian distance. For each ...

Smoothening pseudo-Anosov flows

A topological Anosov flow on a closed 3-manifold can be replaced by a smooth Anosov flow using an argument of Fried: use Markov partitions to find a surface of section, put in other terms, one can ...

Leaves of stable foliation of holomorphic Anosov diffeomorphism

I'm trying to understand the first half of the paper "Holomorphic Anosov systems" by E. Ghys (the journal reference is Inventiones mathematicae volume 119, pages 585–614(1995)). My question is about a ...

Unique poine in holonomies

Let $\Lambda$ be Axiom A for $C^{1+\gamma}$ $f$. I am reading this paper. I have a problem to undestand holonomies. The holonomy mapping $$ h: W_{loc}^{s} (x) \cap\Lambda \rightarrow W_{loc}^{s} (y) \...

Transverse measures in pseudo-Anosov diffeomorphisms

I've recently begun doing research involving pseudo-Anosov diffeomorphisms, which are diffeomorphisms on surfaces $f : M \to M$ admitting two singular measured foliations $(\mathcal F^s, \nu^s)$ and $(...

Complex differentials and measured singular foliations

I'm trying to understand the technical basis of singular foliations for pseudo-Anosov diffeomorphisms, and I've hit a bit of a strange calculation I'm having a hard time verifying/unpacking. In Fathi, ...

Handel's Theorem for surfaces with boundary

Handel's Theorem(Entropy and semi-conjugacy in dimension two, 1987): let $M$ denote a closed surface. Let $\vartheta$ be a pseudo-Anosov (orientation-presrv.) homeomorphism of $M$ and $g$ be an (...

Smooth conditional measures for strong stable foliations of Anosov flows

I am trying to prove an analytic result for gesodesic flows on negatively curved manifolds and I encountered the following dynamical-system porblem. Let $B^n$ be $n$-dimensional balls and $h:B^{n-k}\...

Unstable Foliations

Let $M$ be a closed compact Riemannian manifold, $\mathcal{F}$ be a $C^1$ foliation on $M$. Let $F(x)\in\mathcal{F}$ be the leaf containing $x$. Definition. $\mathcal{F}$ is said to be a unstable ...

Eigenvalues for toral Anosov automorphisms

It is well known that on every $d$-dimensional torus there exists linear Anosov automorphisms. My question is the following: Given $k< d$ does there exists a linear Anosov automorphism of $\...

Question about an early result on the mixing of geodesic flows

Let $T_t$ be the geodesic flow on a surface $S$ of constant negative curvature, and let $M(f,t) := \langle \bar f \cdot (f \circ T_t) \rangle$, where $\langle f \rangle := \int_S f(x) d\mu(x)$ and ...

Existence conditions for twisted cohomological equations?

Let $T: X \to X$ be an Anosov diffeomorphism. Suppose $f: X \to \mathbb{R}$ is Holder continuous (say with exponent $\alpha$). The question arises as to when $f$ can be written as $g \circ T - g $ ...

When is an Anosov diffeomorphism mixing?

Let $M$ be a compact Riemannian manifold and let $T : M \rightarrow M$ be Anosov. I have read here that it is an open problem to prove that $T$ is topologically mixing if $M$ is connected. Katok and ...

Spectrum of a generic integral matrix.

My collaborators and I are studying certain rigidity properties of hyperbolic toral automorphisms. These are given by integral matrices A with determinant 1 and without eigenvalues on the unit circle....
