Bernoullicity of equilibrium measures on countable Markov shifts

1. 

Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, New York University, 251 Mercer st. New York, NY, 10012-1185, United States

Received  July 2012 Revised  January 2013 Published  March 2013

We study equilibrium behavior for two-sided topological Markov shifts with a countable number of states. We assume the associated potential is Walters with finite first variation and that the shift is topologically transitive. We show the resulting equilibrium measure is Bernoulli up to a period.
