We prove that for evolution problems with normally hyperbolic trapping in phase space, correlations decay exponentially in time. Normal hyperbolic trapping means that the trapped set is smooth and symplectic and that the flow is hyperbolic in directions transversal to it. Flows with this structure include contact Anosov flows [21],[38],[39], classical flows in molecular dynamics [25],[26], and null geodesic flows for black holes metrics [17],[18],[44]. The decay of correlations is a consequence… CONTINUE READING
