# How Many Inflections are There in the Lyapunov Spectrum?

@article{Jenkinson2020HowMI, title={How Many Inflections are There in the Lyapunov Spectrum?}, author={Oliver Jenkinson and Mark Pollicott and P. Vytnova}, journal={Communications in Mathematical Physics}, year={2020}, volume={386}, pages={1383 - 1411} }

Iommi and Kiwi (J Stat Phys 135:535–546, 2009) showed that the Lyapunov spectrum of an expanding map need not be concave, and posed various problems concerning the possible number of inflection points. In this paper we answer a conjecture in Iommi and Kiwi (2009) by proving that the Lyapunov spectrum of a two branch piecewise linear map has at most two points of inflection. We then answer a question in Iommi and Kiwi (2009) by proving that there exist finite branch piecewise linear maps whose…
