From invariance to self-similarity: The work of Michael Hochman on fractal dimension and its aftermath
Hillel Furstenberg
2019, 15(0): 437-449 doi: 10.3934/jmd.2019027 +[Abstract](1322) +[HTML](418) +[PDF](178.53KB)
Abstract:

M. Hochman's work on the dimension of self-similar sets has given impetus to resolving other questions regarding fractal dimension. We describe Hochman's approach and its influence on the subsequent resolution by P. Shmerkin of the conjecture on the dimension of the intersection of \begin{document}$ \times p $\end{document}- and \begin{document}$ \times q $\end{document}-Cantor sets.

Forty years of unimodal dynamics: On the occasion of Artur Avila winning the Brin Prize
Mikhail Lyubich
2012, 6(2): 183-203 doi: 10.3934/jmd.2012.6.183 +[Abstract](3194) +[PDF](307.2KB)
Abstract:
The field of one-dimensional dynamics, real and complex, emerged from obscurity in the 1970s and has been intensely explored ever since. It combines the depth and complexity of chaotic phenomena with a chance to fully understand it in probabilistic terms: to describe the dynamics of typical orbits for typical maps. It also revealed fascinating universality features that had never been noticed before. The interplay between real and complex worlds illuminated by beautiful pictures of fractal structures adds special charm to the field. By now, we have reached a full probabilistic understanding of real analytic unimodal dynamics, and Artur Avila has been the key player in the final stage of the story (which roughly started with the new century). To put his work into perspective, we will begin with an overview of the main events in the field from the 1970s up to the end of the last century. Then we will describe Avila's work on unimodal dynamics that effectively closed up the field. We will finish by describing his results in the closely related direction, the geometry of Feigenbaum Julia sets, including a recent construction of a new class of Julia sets of positive area.

Counting closed geodesics in moduli space
Alex Eskin and Maryam Mirzakhani
2011, 5(1): 71-105 doi: 10.3934/jmd.2011.5.71 +[Abstract](4519) +[PDF](396.8KB)
Abstract:
We compute the asymptotics, as $R$ tends to infinity, of the number $N(R)$ of closed geodesics of length at most $R$ in the moduli space of compact Riemann surfaces of genus $g$. In fact, $N(R)$ is the number of conjugacy classes of pseudo-Anosov elements of the mapping class group of a compact surface of genus $g$ of translation length at most $R$.

Abstract:
D. Dolgopyat is the winner of the second Brin Prize in Dynamical Systems(2009). This article overviews his remarkable achievements in anontechnical manner. It complements two other surveys of Dolgopyat's workwritten by Y. Pesin and C. Liverani and published in this issue. Thissurvey covers Dolgopyat's work on various physical models, including theLorentz gas, Galton board, and some systems of hard disks.
On the work of Dolgopyat on partial and nonuniform hyperbolicity
Yakov Pesin
2010, 4(2): 227-241 doi: 10.3934/jmd.2010.4.227 +[Abstract](2511) +[PDF](187.5KB)
Abstract:
This paper is a nontechnical survey and aims to illustrate Dolgopyat'sprofound contributions to smooth ergodic theory. I will discuss some ofDolgopyat's work on partial hyperbolicity and nonuniform hyperbolicity withemphasis on the interaction between the two-the class of dynamical systemswith mixed hyperbolicity. On one hand, this includes uniformlypartially hyperbolic diffeomorphisms with nonzero Lyapunov exponents in thecenter direction. The study of their ergodic properties has provided analternative approach to the Pugh-Shub stable ergodicity theory for bothconservative and dissipative systems. On the other hand, ideas of mixedhyperbolicity have been used in constructing volume-preservingdiffeomorphisms with nonzero Lyapunov exponents on any manifold.
