About this product
- DescriptionThis book is the first comprehensive introduction to smooth ergodic theory. It consists of two parts: the first introduces the core of the theory and the second discusses more advanced topics. In particular, the book describes the general theory of Lyapuv exponents and its applications to the stability theory of differential equations, the concept of nuniform hyperbolicity, stable manifold theory (with emphasis on the absolute continuity of invariant foliations), and the ergodic theory of dynamical systems with nzero Lyapuv exponents. The authors also present a detailed description of all basic examples of conservative systems with nzero Lyapuv exponents, including the geodesic flows on compact surfaces of npositive curvature. This book is aimed at graduate students specialising in dynamical systems and ergodic theory as well as anyone who wants to acquire a working kwledge of smooth ergodic theory and to learn how to use its tools. With more than 80 exercises, the book can be used as a primary textbook for an advanced course in smooth ergodic theory. The book is self-contained and only a basic kwledge of real analysis, measure theory, differential equations, and topology is required and, even so, the authors provide the reader with the necessary background definitions and results.
