We provide necessary and sufficient conditions for a suspension flow, over a subshift of finite type, to mix faster than any power of time. Then we show that these conditions are satisfied if the flow has two periodic orbits such that the ratio of the periods cannot be well approximated by rationals. 
Periodic Orbits of Hyperbolic Flows
The purpose of this survey is to outline the progress that has been made in understanding the distribution of periodic orbits of Anosov flows and, more generally, hyperbolic flows since the thesis of
Verifying abstract hypotheses used in obtaining mixing rates for some non-uniformly hyperbolic semiflows
We provide an example of a non-uniformly hyperbolic semiflow for which we obtain sharp decay rates of the correlation function for observables supported on a flow-box of unbounded length. We do so by
Exponential mixing for smooth hyperbolic suspension flows
We present some simple examples of exponentially mixing hyperbolic suspension flows. We include some speculations indicating possible applications to suspension flows of algebraic Anosov systems. We
Error terms for closed orbits of hyperbolic flows
In this paper we obtain a polynomial error term for the closed orbit counting function associated to certain hyperbolic flows. In the case of weak-mixing transitive Anosov flows no further conditions

We continue the study of mixing properties of generic hyperbolic flows started in an earlier paper (D. Dolgopyat. Prevalence of rapid mixing in hyperbolic flows. Erg. Th.& Dyn. Sys.18 (1998),
Periodic orbits and holonomy for hyperbolic flows
This paper describes SO(2) -extensions of hyperbolic flows and the holonomy classes of closed obits. Given a non-trvial character we give conditions for the average to tend to zero at a polynomial
Rates of mixing for non-Markov infinite measure semiflows
We develop an abstract framework for obtaining optimal rates of mixing and higher order asymptotics for infinite measure semiflows. Previously, such results were restricted to the situation where
Limit theorems for partially hyperbolic systems
We consider a large class of partially hyperbolic systems containing, among others, affine maps, frame flows on negatively curved manifolds, and mostly contracting diffeomorphisms. If the rate of
A central limit theorem for periodic orbits of hyperbolic flows
We consider a counting problem in the setting of hyperbolic dynamics. Let be a weak-mixing hyperbolic flow. We count the proportion of prime periodic orbits of , with length less than T, that satisfy

A new approach to the study of the rate of mixing in Anosov flows, recently proposed by Chernov, is simplified and generalized to the higher-dimensional case.


Markov approximations and decay of correlations for Anosov flows
We develop Markov approximations for very general suspension flows. Based on this, we obtain a stretched exponential bound on time correlation functions for 3-D Anosov flows that verify ‘uniform

A complex Ruelle-Perron-Frobenius theorem and two counterexamples
Abstract In this paper a new proof of a theorem of Ruelle about real Perron-Frobenius type operators is given. This theorem is then extended to complex Perron-Frobenius type operators in analogy with
On decay of correlations in Anosov flows
There is some disagreement about the meaning of the phrase 'chaotic flow.' However, there is no doubt that mixing Anosov flows provides an example of such systems. Anosov systems were introduced and
In this paper we introduce the concept of a Gibbs measure, which generalizes the concept of an equilibrium Gibbs distribution in statistical physics. The new concept is important in the study of
