Abstract We study two properties of a finite measure-preserving dynamical system and a given sequence $({n}_{m} )$ of positive integers, namely rigidity and non-recurrence. Our goal is to find conditions on the sequence which ensure that it is, or is not, a rigid sequence or a non-recurrent sequence for some weakly mixing system or more generally for some ergodic system. The main focus is on weakly mixing systems. For example, we show that for any integer $a\geq 2$ the sequence ${n}_{m} = {a…

Abstract We study non-recurrence sets for weakly mixing dynamical systems by using linear dynamical systems. These are systems consisting of a bounded linear operator acting on a separable complex
Non-ergodic $\mathbb{Z}$-periodic billiards and infinite translation surfaces
We give a criterion which proves non-ergodicity for certain infinite periodic billiards and directional flows on $\mathbb{Z}$-periodic translation surfaces. Our criterion applies in particular to a
Kazhdan constants, continuous probability measures with large Fourier coefficients and rigidity sequences
Exploiting a construction of rigidity sequences for weakly mixing dynamical systems by Fayad and Thouvenot, we show that for every integers $p_{1},\dots,p_{r}$ there exists a continuous probability
On modulated ergodic theorems
Let $T$ be a weakly almost periodic (WAP) linear operator on a Banach space $X$. A sequence of scalars $(a_n)_{n\ge 1}$ {\it modulates} $T$ on $Y \subset X$ if $\frac1n\sum_{k=1}^n a_kT^k x$
Rigidity times for a weakly mixing dynamical system which are not rigidity times for any irrational rotation
We construct an increasing sequence of natural numbers $(m_{n})_{n=1}^{+\infty }$ with the property that $(m_{n}{\it\theta}[1])_{n\geq 1}$ is dense in $\mathbb{T}$ for any ${\it\theta}\in
Rigidity, weak mixing, and recurrence in abelian groups
There exists a sequence of rigidity sequences in torsion groups such that every translate is both a rigidity sequence and a set of recurrence.
Non-ergodic Z-periodic billiards and infinite translation surfaces
We give a criterion which allows to prove non-ergodicity for certain infinite periodic billiards and directional flows on Z-periodic translation surfaces. Our criterion applies in particular to a
Nonsingular transformations that are ergodic with isometric coefficients and not weakly doubly ergodic.
We study two properties of nonsingular and infinite measure-preserving ergodic systems: weak double ergodicity, and ergodicity with isometric coefficients. We show that there exist infinite
Uniform rigidity sequences for weak mixing diffeomorphisms on $\mathbb{T}^2$
In this paper we will show that if a sequence of natural numbers satisfies a certain growth rate, then there is a weak mixing diffeomorphism on $\mathbb{T}^2$ that is uniformly rigid with respect to


Random ergodic theorems and real cocycles
AbstractWe study mean convergence of ergodic averages $$\frac{1}{N}\sum\nolimits_{n = 0}^{N - 1} {f^\circ \tau ^{k_n (\omega )} ( * )} $$ associated to a measure-preserving transformation or flow τ
Some invariant -algebras for measure-preserving transformations
For an invertible measure-preserving transformation T of a Lebesgue measure space (X, 31, m) and a sequence A' of integers, a T-invariant partition aN(T) of (X, M, tri) is defined. The relationship

We will introduce now the notions of correlation functions and their Fourier transforms which play an important role in various applications of the theory of dynamical systems. Suppose {T t } is a
Some characteristic properties of dynamical systems with quasi-discrete spectra
The result can be viewed as a partial generalization of Section 2, Theorem 2.1, which gives a sufficient condition for disjointness in terms of the spectra of two transformations, which shows that "in general" a set and its complement form a generator.
Distribution of values of bounded generalized polynomials
A generalized polynomial is a real-valued function which is obtained from conventional polynomials by the use of the operations of addition, multiplication, and taking the integer part; a generalized
Disjointness in ergodic theory, minimal sets, and a problem in diophantine approximation
The objects of ergodic theory -measure spaces with measure-preserving transformation groups- will be called processes, those of topological dynamics-compact metric spaces with groups of homeomorphisms-will be called flows, and what may be termed the "arithmetic" of these classes of objects is concerned.
Mixing actions of groups
This special extreme is important for recurrence theorems and can be characterized in a number of interesting ways, see Furstenberg, Katznelson, and Ornstein [8]. This concept was extended to
Ergodicity of Rokhlin cocycles
We develop a general study of ergodic properties of extensions of measure preserving dynamical systems. These extensions are given by cocycles (called here Rokhlin cocycles) taking values in the
Rokhlin extensions and lifting disjointness
Assuming that two ergodic automorphisms T and R are disjoint, we prove that an ergodic extension $\tilde{T}$ of T remains disjoint with R when, in a representation of $\tilde{T}$ as a skew product
