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. 


Thermodynamics of the glassy state
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.
On Some Aspects of the Theory of Anosov Systems
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
Electric fields on a surface of constant negative curvature
A one-parameter family of time reversible Anosov flows is studied; physically, it describes a particle moving on a surface of constant negative curvature under the action of an electric field

Introduction to Ergodic Theory
Ergodic theory concerns with the study of the long-time behavior of a dynamical system. An interesting result known as Birkhoff’s ergodic theorem states that under certain conditions, the time
