Thermodynamic Formalism in Dynamical Systems

 18 - 22 Jun 2018
 ICMS, 15 South College Street Edinburgh

  • Omri Sarig, Weizmann Institute of Science

  • Dan Thompson, Ohio State University

  • Mike Todd, University of St Andrews

The aim was to bring together researchers with a wide range of specialities in thermodynamic formalism. The four main themes were: non-uniformly hyperbolic and non-compact systems, subadditive ergodic theory and applications, infinite ergodic theory and dissipative dynamics and thermodynamics for systems of a geometric/physical origin.
