This week-long workshop is concerned with the application of ideas in thermodynamic formalism to dynamical systems. The primary targets in the early days of this approach were compact uniformly hyperbolic dynamical systems, usually with rather regular, although fractal, attracting/repelling sets. Recently these ideas have been applied to non-uniformly hyperbolic systems, non-compact systems, dissipative systems and systems with irregular attractors.
The main foci of the workshop are to bring together researchers with a wide range of specialities in thermodynamic formalism to allow for an increased interchange of ideas between these subfields and to address the important questions of contemporary interest. The four main themes will be: Non-uniformly hyperbolic and non-compact systems; Subadditive ergodic theory and applications; Infinite ergodic theory and dissipative dynamics; Thermodynamics for systems of a geometric/physical origin.
Invited speakers and participants will receive an email invitation from ICMS in February 2018. There will be an open application for PhD students and other interested individuals available on this site early in 2018.
