Abstract: We give necessary and sufficient conditions for an endomorphism to admit an equivalent invariant $\sigma$-finite measure in terms of a generalized Perron-Frobenius operator. The assumptions are that the endomorphism is nonsingular (preserves sets of measure zero), conservative, and finite-to-1. We study two orbit equivalence relations associated to an endomorphism, and their connections to nonsingularity, ergodicity, and exactness. We also discuss Radon-Nikodym derivative cocycles for the relations and the endomorphism, and relate these to the Jacobian of the endomorphism.
