We study the top Lyapunov exponents of random products of positive $2 \times 2$ matrices and obtain an efficient algorithm for its computation. As in the earlier work of Pollicott, the algorithm is based on the Fredholm theory of determinants of trace-class linear operators. In this article we obtain a simpler expression for the approximations which only require calculation of the eigenvalues of finite matrix products and not the eigenvectors. Moreover, we obtain effective bounds on the error… CONTINUE READING
