Thermodynamical formalism for higher dimensional maps
Samuel Anton Senti (UFRJ)
Resumo: We show how inducing schemes for multidimensional maps can be used to describe
the potential functions for which existence (and uniqueness) of equilibrium measures can be
proven. This will be illustrated with a few examples with Gibbs-Markov-Young towers (including
the Hénon maps and Katok's example).
Whereas in general the class of invariant measures for which this thermodynamical formalism
applies may not encompass all invariant measures, we will illustrate certain examples where this
is the case. Time permitting we will explain how extra information on the inducing scheme ensures that all measures can be accounted for through this formalism.
