Abstract: We prove the longstanding EckmannRuelle conjecture in dimension theory of smooth dynamical systems. We show that the pointwise dimension exists almost everywhere with respect to a compactly supported Borel probability measure with nonzero Lyapunov exponents, invariant under a diffeomorphism of a smooth Riemannian manifold.
