# Asymptotic pairs in positive-entropy systems

@article{Blanchard2002AsymptoticPI, title={Asymptotic pairs in positive-entropy systems}, author={Franccois Blanchard and Bernard Host and Sylvie Ruette}, journal={Ergodic Theory and Dynamical Systems}, year={2002}, volume={22}, pages={671 - 686} }

We show that in a topological dynamical system (X,T) of positive entropy there exist proper (positively) asymptotic pairs, that is, pairs (x,y) such that x\not= y and \lim_{n\to +\infty} d(T^n x,T^n y)=0. More precisely we consider a T-ergodic measure \mu of positive entropy and prove that the set of points that belong to a proper asymptotic pair is of measure one. When T is invertible, the stable classes (i.e. the equivalence classes for the asymptotic equivalence) are not stable under T^{-1…

Topological entropy zero and asymptotic pairs

Let T be a continuous map on a compact metric space (X, d). A pair of distinct points x, y ∈ X is asymptotic if limn→∞d(Tnx, Tny) = 0. We prove the following four conditions to be equivalent: 1.…

Abstract Let (X,T) be a topologically transitive dynamical system. We show that if there is a subsystem (Y,T) of (X,T) such that (X×Y,T×T) is transitive, then (X,T) is strongly chaotic in the sense…

Stable Sets and $$\epsilon$$-Stable Sets in Positive-Entropy Systems

It is shown that in any positive-entropy system, there is a measure-theoretically “rather big” set such that the closure of the stable or unstable set of any point from the set contains a weak mixing set.

We provide a definition of a ≺-asymptotic pair in a topological action of a countable amenable group G, where ≺ is an order on G of type Z. We then prove that if (Õ, ν,G) is a multiorder on G, then…

In the paper we study relations of rigidity, equicontinuity and pointwise recurrence between an invertible topological dynamical system (t.d.s.) $(X,T)$ and the t.d.s. $(K(X),T_{K})$ induced on the…

Let F be a collection of subsets of ℝ+ and (X, T) be a dynamical system; x ∈ X is F-recurrent if for each neighborhood U of x, {n ∈ ℝ+: Tnx ∈ U} ∈ F; x is F-product recurrent if (x, y) is recurrent…

We prove that for every ergodic invariant measure with positive entropy of a continuous map on a compact metric space there is δ > 0 such that the dynamical δ-balls have measure zero. We use this…
