We show that symbolic finite-to-one extensions of the type constructed by O. Sarig for surface diffeomorphisms induce Hölder-continuous conjugacies on large sets. We deduce this from their Bowen property. This notion, introduced in a joint work with M. Boyle, generalizes a fact first observed by R. Bowen for Markov partitions. We rely on the notion of degree from finite equivalence theory and magic word isomorphisms.
As an application, we give lower bounds on the number of periodic points first for surface diffeomorphisms (improving a result of Sarig) and for Sinaï billiards maps (building on a result of Baladi and Demers). Finally we characterize surface diffeomorphisms admitting a Hölder-continuous coding of all their aperiodic hyperbolic measures and give a slightly weaker construction preserving local compactness.
We study joining rigidity in the class of von Neumann flows with one singularity. They are given by a smooth vector field
We study the near action of the group
We prove that every finitely generated abelian subgroup of
The group of (oriented) interval exchanges is obviously realizable (choosing the unique left-continuous representative). We show that it has only two realizations (up to conjugation by a finitely supported permutation): the left and right-continuous ones.
We show that the number of square-tiled surfaces of genus
A homothety surface can be assembled from polygons by identifying their edges in pairs via homotheties, which are compositions of translation and scaling. We consider linear trajectories on a
We study thermodynamic formalism for topologically transitive partially hyperbolic systems in which the center-stable bundle satisfies a bounded expansion property, and show that every potential function satisfying the Bowen property has a unique equilibrium measure. Our method is to use tools from geometric measure theory to construct a suitable family of reference measures on unstable leaves as a dynamical analogue of Hausdorff measure, and then show that the averaged pushforwards of these measures converge to a measure that has the Gibbs property and is the unique equilibrium measure.
We present a separation property for the gaps in the length spectrum of a compact Riemannian manifold with negative curvature. In arbitrary small neighborhoods of the metric for some suitable topology, we show that there are negatively curved metrics with a length spectrum exponentially separated from below. This property was previously known to be false generically.
We prove that the entropy function on the moduli space of real quadratic rational maps is not monotonic by exhibiting a continuum of disconnected level sets. This entropy behavior is in stark contrast with the case of polynomial maps, and establishes a conjecture on the failure of monotonicity for bimodal real quadratic rational maps of shape
We prove that there are no Shimura–Teichmüller curves generated by genus five translation surfaces, thereby completing the classification of Shimura–Teichmüller curves in general. This was conjectured by Möller in his original work introducing Shimura–Teichmüller curves. Moreover, the property of being a Shimura–Teichmüller curve is equivalent to having completely degenerate Kontsevich–Zorich spectrum.
The main new ingredient comes from the work of Hu and the second named author, which facilitates calculations of higher order terms in the period matrix with respect to plumbing coordinates. A large computer search is implemented to exclude the remaining cases, which must be performed in a very specific way to be computationally feasible.
