# Effective statistical physics of Anosov systems

@article{Huntsman2010EffectiveSP, title={Effective statistical physics of Anosov systems}, author={Steve Huntsman}, journal={arXiv: Statistical Mechanics}, year={2010} }

We present evidence indicating that Anosov systems can be endowed with a unique physically reasonable effective temperature. Results for the two paradigmatic Anosov systems (i.e., the cat map and the geodesic flow on a surface of constant negative curvature) are used to justify a proposal for extending Ruelle's thermodynamical formalism into a comprehensive theory of statistical physics for nonequilibrium steady states satisfying the Gallavotti-Cohen chaotic hypothesis.

The approach connects the response of macroscopic observables to a field change with their temporal fluctuations, and with the fluctuation-dissipation relation, in a generalized non-equilibrium way.

The theory of Anosov systems is a result of the generalization of certain properties, which hold on geodesic flows on manifolds of negative curvature. It turned out that these properties alone are…
