Ergodic Optimization, Zero Temperature Limits and the Max-plus Algebra
by

Publisher: arXiv
Number of pages: 106

Description:
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.

Book cover: Valuations and Hyperbolicity in DynamicsValuations and Hyperbolicity in Dynamics
by - University of East Anglia
These notes describe several situations in dynamics where the notion of valuations on rings provides a simple language in which to describe and exploit hyperbolicity. This approach goes a little beyond simply providing a convenient language.

Book cover: Ordinary Differential Equations and Dynamical SystemsOrdinary Differential Equations and Dynamical Systems
by - Universitaet Wien
This book provides an introduction to ordinary differential equations and dynamical systems. We start with some simple examples of explicitly solvable equations. Then we prove the fundamental results concerning the initial value problem.
