On mixing and sparse ergodic theorems

Abstract Full Text(HTML) Related Papers Cited by
  • We consider Bourgain's ergodic theorem regarding arithmetic averages in the cases where quantitative mixing is present in the dynamical system. Focusing on the case of the horocyclic flow, those estimates allow us to bound from above the Hausdorff dimension of the exceptional set, providing evidence towards conjectures by Margulis, Shah, and Sarnak regarding equidistribution of arithmetic averages in homogeneous spaces. We also prove the existence of a uniform upper bound for the Hausdorff dimension of the exceptional set which is independent of the spectral gap.
