Title: Stochastic properties of Dynamical Systems: A Spectral Theoretic Approach
Abstract of Talk
The time evolution of many Markov chains and of many hyperbolic dynamical systems can fruitfully be described in terms of associated transfer operators acting on spaces of (generalized) functions. I will outline the formal similarities and the differences in interpretation between these two settings. Then I will explain briefly a spectral theorem and a perturbation theorem that have turned out to be extremely useful for proving probabilistic limit theorems in both settings.
