This book is a collection of papers written by participants in the seminar of Ya. G. Sinai, which has for thirty years played the leading role in shaping the modern statistical and topological theory of dynamical systems. The seminar has served as the major place for new ideas and approaches in the ergodic theory of dynamical systems.
These papers, written by internationally known mathematicians, represent the major part of the enormous variety of Sinai's scientific interests. The following topics are discussed: hyperbolic dynamical systems, limit theorems for dynamical systems with chaotic behavior, thermodynamic formalism, symbolic dynamics, symplectic geometry, statistical mechanics, and more.
The book reflects the unique style of Sinai's school and its interest in various interconnections between ergodic theory and various other branches of mathematics and physics.
Graduate students and research mathematicians working in dynamical systems, ergodic theory, and statistical mechanics.
