Geodesic flows: Mixing, zeta functions and resonances
Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute
AbstractHistorically important examples of ``chaotic'' dynamical systems are Anosov flows, in particular, and geodesic flows on negatively curved manifolds. In particular, they provide a concrete setting to explore a wealth of interesting topics: (i) mixing rates (which can be studied using zeta function and resonances); (ii) large deviations and fluctuation theorems (Gallavotti-Cohen theorem in non-equilibrium statistical mechanics); and (iii) escape rates (the rate at which mass escapes from an open system) and extremes.
If it doesn't, something may have gone wrong with our embedded player.
We'll get it fixed as soon as possible.
