We review some basic notions in ergodic theory and thermodynamic formalism, as well as introductory results in the context of max-plus algebra, in order to exhibit some properties of equilibrium measures when temperature goes to zero.

Nonlinear dynamics (''chaos theory'') and quantum mechanics are two of the scientific triumphs of the 20th century. The author gives a brief review of the origin and fundamentals of both quantum mechanics and nonlinear dynamics.
