Flexibility of Lyapunov exponents for expanding circle maps

Abstract Full Text(HTML) Figure(1) Related Papers Cited by
  • Let $ g $ be a smooth expanding map of degree $ D $ which maps a circle to itself, where $ D $ is a natural number greater than $ 1 $. It is known that the Lyapunov exponent of $ g $ with respect to the unique invariant measure that is absolutely continuous with respect to the Lebesgue measure is positive and less than or equal to $ \log D $ which, in addition, is less than or equal to the Lyapunov exponent of $ g $ with respect to the measure of maximal entropy. Moreover, the equalities can only occur simultaneously. We show that these are the only restrictions on the Lyapunov exponents considered above for smooth expanding maps of degree $ D $ on a circle.
