**Valuations and Hyperbolicity in Dynamics**

by Thomas Ward

**Publisher**: University of East Anglia 2001**Number of pages**: 58

**Description**:

These notes describe several situations in dynamics where the notion of valuations on rings provides a simple language in which to describe and exploit (analogues of) hyperbolicity. This approach goes a little beyond simply providing a convenient language.
