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
• Mathematics

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.
Existence of asymptotic pairs in positive entropy group actions
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
The speed with which an orbit approaches a limit point
If is a continuous map of a compact metric space , and if is a sequence of positive reals converging to 0, we investigate the properties of the set . We show that is a dense subset of for every when

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
Product recurrent properties, disjointness and weak disjointness
• Mathematics
• 2009
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
Expansivity of ergodic measures with positive entropy

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
