Subadditive cocycles are the random version of subadditive sequences. They play an important role in probability and ergodic theory, notably through Kingman’s theorem ensuring their almost sure convergence. We discuss a variation around Kingman’s theorem, showing that a subadditive cocycle is in fact almost additive at many times. This result is motivated by the study of the iterates of deterministic or random semicontractions on metric spaces, and implies the almost sure existence of a…

Wolff–Denjoy theorems in geodesic spaces
We show a Wolff–Denjoy type theorem in complete geodesic spaces in the spirit of Beardon's framework that unifies several results in this area. In particular, it applies to strictly convex bounded
Comments on the cosmic convergence of nonexpansive maps
Using metric functionals, a connection to the invariant subspace problem is made and a new result for nonexpansive maps of documentclass[12pt]{minimal] is proved.

Modelling High-Level Mathematical Reasoning in Mechanised Declarative Proofs
A non-synthetic dataset is built from the largest repository of mechanised proofs and a task on causal reasoning, where a model is required to fill in a missing intermediate proposition given a causal context, and a hierarchical transformer model is proposed that outperforms the transformer baseline.
The metric compactification of $L_{p}$ represented by random measures
We present a complete characterization of the metric compactification of $L_{p}$ for all $1 \leq p < \infty$. Each element of the metric compactification of $L_{p}$ is represented by a random measure


Subadditive and multiplicative ergodic theorems
A result for subadditive ergodic cocycles is proved that provides more delicate information than Kingman's subadditive ergodic theorem. As an application we deduce a multiplicative ergodic theorem
A Multiplicative Ergodic Theorem and Nonpositively Curved Spaces
Abstract:We study integrable cocycles u(n,x) over an ergodic measure preserving transformation that take values in a semigroup of nonexpanding maps of a nonpositively curved space Y, e.g. a

We give stronger versions and alternative simple proofs of some results of Beardon, [Be1] and [Be2]. These results concern contractions of locally compact metric spaces and generalize the theorems of
What is ergodic theory
Ergodic theory involves the study of transformations on measure spaces. Interchanging the words “measurable function” and “probability density function” translates many results from real analysis to
Asymptotic behavior of nonexpansive mappings in normed linear spaces
LetT be a nonexpansive mapping on a normed linear spaceX. We show that there exists a linear functional.f, ‖f‖=1, such that, for allx∈X, limn→xf(Tnx/n)=limn→x‖Tnx/n‖=α, where α≡infy∈c‖Ty-y‖. This

We prove a general noncommutative law of large numbers. This applies in particular to random walks on any locally finite homogeneous graph, as well as to Brownian motion on Riemannian manifolds whi
The Ergodic Theory of Subadditive Stochastic Processes
SUMMARY An ergodic theory is developed for the subadditive processes introduced by Hammersley and Welsh (1965) in their study of percolation theory. This is a complete generalization of the classical
