Ergodic Optimization, Zero Temperature Limits and the Max-plus Algebra
by

Publisher: arXiv
Number of pages: 106

Description:
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.
