### A non-Kolmogorov system with Lebesgue spectrum: New examples?

It is known that a Kolmogorov system has Lebesgue spectrum, while not every system with Lebesgue spectrum is Kolmogorov. Some of the examples of the latter case are mentioned in Example 9.5.12 of the ...

### Measure preserving system with only trivial eigenfunctions

I want to show that if $(X,\mathcal{X}, \mu, S)$ is a measure preserving system, then $S$ has no non-trivial eigenfunctions if and only if the spectral measures corresponding to all non-constant ...

### Complex Hölder space

I already posted this question on math.stackexchange, but got no response and was suggested to post it here. I came across a space in an ergodic theory paper, which I am calling here a (complex) ...

### Construction of minimal zero entropy measure-theoretically strong mixing subshift?

Does anyone know of a construction of a subshift (over $\mathbb{Z}$) which is (1) minimal (2) zero (topological) entropy (3) measure-theoretically strong mixing (for some measure)? I am in particular ...

### For measure-preserving systems, is countable generatability of the invariant $\sigma$-algebra equivalent to almost all points being periodic?

Let $X$ be a second countable Hausdorff topological space, let $T \colon X \to X$ be a Borel-measurable map, define the $\sigma$-algebra $\mathcal{I}=\{A \in \mathcal{B}(X) : T^{-1}(A)=A\}$, and for ...

### Relation between the distance projective maps and their angles

Let $f:N \to \mathbb{R}^2$ be a differentiable map of smooth manifolds. Let $\mathbb{R}^2$ be decomposed as a direct sum of line bundles, i.e. $\mathbb{R}^2=E(x) \oplus F(x)$, where $F(x)$ and $E(x)$ ...

### Equivalent definitions of topological weak mixing

A dynamical system $f:X\to X$ is said to be topologically transitive if for any two nonempty open sets $U,V$ there exists $n \in \mathbb{Z}$ such that $f^{\circ n}(U) \cap V \neq \emptyset$. The ...

### Ergodic transformations, their Poisson suspensions and their Krieger types

Let $T$ be an ergodic nonsingular tranformation of a Lebesgue space. Suppose that the Poisson transformation $T^*$ of $T$ is well-defined and ergodic. Denote by $\alpha$ the Krieger type of $T$ and by ...

### Maximal ergodic inequality

A map $f: X \to X$ preserves an ergodic probability $\mu$, i.e., $\mu \circ f^{-1}=\mu$ and for any $\phi: X \to \mathbb{R}$ with $\int \phi d\mu=0$, \frac{1}{n} \sum_{i \le n} \phi \circ f^i \to 0 \...

### 3-periodic point implies positive topological entropy

When I learn some basic ergodic theory, I encounter an interesting exercise. As we all know, 3-periodic point often means chaos. Therefore, when a continuous map has a 3-periodic point, it may have ...

### K-flows reference

The following paper is about how a K-flow is produced from a K-induced map, but it is written in Russian. Does someone know where to find its English version? Do some textbooks include this topic? B. ...

### The closure of the orbit of an irrational grid contains the fiber

Let $G=\text{SL}(d,\mathbb R)$ and $\Gamma = \text{SL}(d,\mathbb Z)$. The homogeneous space is identified with the space of unimodular lattices, denoted $X_d$. Let $Y_d$ denote the space of unimodular ...

### Recurrence of ergodic processes

Let $(X_1,X_2,\ldots)$ be a stationary ergodic process with each $X_n$ a real random variable taking values in $[-1,+1]$. Suppose that $\mathbb{E}[X_n]=0$. Let $S_n = \sum_{k=1}^n X_k$. Is the process ...

### Is the consecutive sum set large in general?

$\DeclareMathOperator\CSS{CSS}$It is well known that for a set $A$ of integers, if $\gcd(A) = d$, then the set of (integer) linear combinations of $A$ is $d\mathbb{Z}$. I'm looking for a probability ...

Given a finite directed connected graph $G$, let $P_{circle}$ be the set of finitely long circle paths on $G$ (a circle path is a path with identical starting and ending vertex). It is well known that ...
