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

by A. T. Baraviera, R. Leplaideur, A. O. Lopes

**Publisher**: arXiv 2013**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.

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.
