Let (X, d) be a compact metric space, f : X → X be a continuous map with the specification property, and ϕ : X → R be a continuous function. We prove a variational principle for topological pressure (in the sense of Pesin and Pitskel) for non-compact sets of the form (x ∈ X : lim n→∞ 1 n n−1 X i=0 ϕ(f i (x)) = α). Analogous results were previously known for(More)

For a period of six days, azimuthally-averaged winds at 850 hPa remained cyclonic out from the center of circulation to the 2000 km radius, with azimuthally-averaged tangential wind speeds at or greater(More)
