Recurrence times and Rates of Mixing

  title={Recurrence times and Rates of Mixing},
  author={Lai-Sang Young},
This paper is part of an attempt to understand the speed of mixing and related statistical properties for chaotic dynamical systems. More precisely, we are interested in systems that are expanding or hyperbolic on large parts (though not necessarily all) of their phase spaces. A natural approach to this problem is to pick a suitable reference set, and to regard a part of the system as having “renewed” itself when it makes a “full” return to this set. We obtain in this way a representation of… CONTINUE READING
