Dynamics, Ergodic Theory, and Geometry
by Boris Hasselblatt
Publisher: Cambridge University Press 2007
Number of pages: 334
This volume contains surveys and research articles by leading experts in several areas of dynamical systems that have recently experienced substantial progress. Some of the major surveys focus on symplectic geometry; smooth rigidity; hyperbolic, parabolic, and symbolic dynamics; and ergodic theory. Students and researchers in dynamical systems, geometry, and related areas will find this a fascinating look at the state of the art.

We review some basic notions in ergodic theory and thermodynamic formalism, as well as introductory results in the context of max-plus algebra, in order to exhibit some properties of equilibrium measures when temperature goes to zero.

Informal lecture notes intended for graduate students about the standard local theory of holomorphic foliations and vector fields. Though the material presented here is well-known some of the proofs differ slightly from the classical arguments.

Aimed at mathematics and engineering graduate students and researchers in the areas of optimization, dynamical systems, control systems, signal processing, and linear algebra. The problems solved are those of linear algebra and linear systems theory.
