Abstract: We study properties of the distribution of the second Ostrogradskiĭ series, for which the differences of terms are independent identically distributed random variables. We completely describe the Lebesgue structure of this distribution. In particular, we prove that it cannot be absolutely continuous. We also develop ergodic theory for the second Ostrogradskiĭ expansion. One of the results is that, for almost all (in the sense of Lebesgue measure) real numbers of the unit interval, an arbitrary symbol of an alphabet occurs finitely often in the corresponding Ostrogradskiĭ difference expansion. We also study properties of the dynamical system generated by the onesided shift transformations of the Ostrogradskiĭ difference representation. It is shown that there is no probability measure that is invariant and ergodic with respect to and absolutely continuous with respect to Lebesgue measure.
