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

by A. T. Baraviera, R. Leplaideur, A. O. Lopes

**Publisher**: arXiv 2013**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.
