For a closed, strictly convex projective manifold of dimension $n\geq 3$ that admits a hyperbolic structure, we show that the ratio of Hilbert volume to hyperbolic volume is bounded below by a constant that depends only on dimension. We also show that for such spaces, if topological entropy of the geodesic flow goes to zero, the volume must go to infinity. These results follow from adapting Besson--Courtois--Gallot's entropy rigidity result to Hilbert geometries. 
Entropy rigidity for finite volume strictly convex projective manifolds
We prove entropy rigidity for finite volume strictly convex projective manifolds in dimensions $\geq 3$, generalizing the work of arXiv:1708.03983 to the finite volume setting. The rigidity theorem

. We study the entropy of Sinai-Ruelle-Bowen measure of the geodesic flow on convex real projective surfaces, and shows that the Hilbert area tends to infinity if the entropy tends to zero. For the
Entropy rigidity for 3D conservative Anosov flows and dispersing billiards
Given an integer $k \geq 5$, and a $C^k$ Anosov flow $\Phi$ on some compact connected $3$-manifold preserving a smooth volume, we show that the measure of maximal entropy (MME) is the volume measure
Entropy rigidity for foliations by strictly convex projective manifolds
Let $N$ be a compact manifold with a foliation $\mathscr{F}_N$ whose leaves are compact strictly convex projective manifolds. Let $M$ be a compact manifold with a foliation $\mathscr{F}_M$ whose

Entropies of compact strictly convex projective manifolds
Let M be a compact manifold of dimension n with a strictly convex projective structure. We consider the geodesic flow of the Hilbert metric on it, which is known to be Anosov. We prove that its
The Degree Theorem in Higher Rank
Let N be any closed, Riemannian manifold. In this paper we prove that, for most locally symmetric, nonpositively curved Riemannian manifolds M , and for every continuous map f : N → M , the map f is
Minimal Entropy Rigidity for Lattices in Products of Rank One Symmetric Spaces
where B(x,R) is the ball of radius R around a fixed point x in the universal cover X. (For noncompact M , see Section 6.2.) The number h(g) is independent of the choice of x, and equals the
Entropy of the geodesic flow for metric spaces and Bruhat-Tits buildings
Let ðX ; dX Þ be a geodesically complete Hadamard space endowed with a Borel- measure m. Assume that there exists a group G of isometries of X which acts totally discontin- uously and cocompactly on

Flexing closed hyperbolic manifolds.
We show that for certain closed hyperbolic manifolds, one can nontrivially deform the real hyperbolic structure when it is considered as a real projective structure. It is also shown that in the
Ergodicity of Bowen–Margulis measure for the Benoist 3-manifolds
We study the geodesic flow of a class of 3-manifolds introduced by Benoist which have some hyperbolicity but are non-Riemannian, not CAT(0), and with non-C^1 geodesic flow. The geometries are

We survey some basic geometric properties of the Funk metric of a convex set in R n . In particular, we study its geodesics, its topology, its metric balls, its convexity properties, its

Abstract We study asymptotic growth of closed geodesies for various Riemannian metrics on a compact manifold which carries a metric of negative sectional curvature. Our approach makes use of both

The moduli space of convex projective structures on a simplicial hyperbolic Coxeter orbifold is either a point or the real line. Answering a question of M. Crampon, we prove that in the latter case,
