Abstract: The Ruelle zeta-function of the geodesic flow on the sphere bundle $ S(X)$ of an even-dimensional compact locally symmetric space X of rank 1 is a meromorphic function in the complex plane that satisfies a functional equation relating its values in s and -s. The multiplicity of its singularity in the central critical point s = 0 only depends on the hyperbolic structure of the flow and can be calculated by integrating a secondary characteristic class canonically associated to the flow-invariant foliations of $ S(X)$ for which a representing differential form is given.
