  title={The Arithmetic of Dynamical Systems},
  author={Joseph H. Silverman},
* Provides an entry for graduate students into an active field of research * Each chapter includes exercises, examples, and figures * Will become a standard reference for researchers in the field * Contains descriptions of many known results and conjectures, together with an extensive bibliography This book provides an introduction to the relatively new discipline of arithmetic dynamics. Whereas classical discrete dynamics is the study of iteration of self-maps of the complex plane or real… 
Chapter IX: Some Problems of Arithmetic Origin in Rational Dynamics
These are lecture notes from a course in arithmetic dynamics given in Grenoble in June 2017. The main purpose of this text is to explain how arithmetic equidistribution theory can be used in the

Difference fields and descent in algebraic dynamics. I
Abstract We draw a connection between the model-theoretic notions of modularity (or one-basedness), orthogonality and internality, as applied to difference fields, and questions of descent in in
On recent results of ergodic property for p -adic dynamical systems
Theory of dynamical systems in fields of p-adic numbers is an important part of algebraic and arithmetic dynamics. The study of p-adic dynamical systems is motivated by their applications in various
Potential Theory and Dynamics on the Berkovich Projective Line
The purpose of this book is to develop the foundations of potential theory and rational dynamics on the Berkovich projective line over an arbitrary complete, algebraically closed non-Archimedean
The arithmetic Hodge-index theorem and rigidity of algebraic dynamical systems over function fields
Author(s): Carney, Alexander | Advisor(s): Yuan, Xinyi | Abstract: In one of the fundamental results of Arakelov’s arithmetic intersection theory, Faltings and Hriljac (independently) proved the
Dynamical moduli spaces and elliptic curves
— In these notes, we present a connection between the complex dynamics of a family of rational functions ft : P1 → P1, parameterized by t in a Riemann surface X, and the arithmetic dynamics of ft on
The Cycle Structure of Unicritical Polynomials
A polynomial with integer coefficients yields a family of dynamical systems indexed by primes as follows: for any prime $p$, reduce its coefficients mod $p$ and consider its action on the field $
Examples of dynamical degree equals arithmetic degree
Let f : X --> X be a dominant rational map of a projective variety defined over a number field. An important geometric-dynamical invariant of f is its (first) dynamical degree d_f= lim
Heights on moduli space for post-critically finite dynamical systems
The purpose of this Research In Teams event was to consider the arithmetic properties of post-critically finite (PCF) rational maps. In the study of complex holomorphic dynamics, it is a general


S-integer dynamical systems: periodic points.
We associate via duality a dynamical system to each pair (RS,x), where RS is the ring of S-integers in an A-field k, and x is an element of RS\{0}. These dynamical systems include the circle doubling
Homoclinic points of algebraic ℤ^{}-actions
An algebraic zd-action is an action of Zd by (continuous) automorphisms of a compact abelian group. The dynamics of a single group automorphism have been investigated in great detail over the past
Advanced Topics in the Arithmetic of Elliptic Curves
In The Arithmetic of Elliptic Curves, the author presented the basic theory culminating in two fundamental global results, the Mordell-Weil theorem on the finite generation of the group of rational

We show that for almost every ergodic $S$-integer dynamical system the radius of convergence of the dynamical zeta function is no larger than $\exp(-\frac{1}{2}h_{\rm top})<1$. In the arithmetic case
Dynamics in One Complex Variable: Introductory Lectures
These notes study the dynamics of iterated holomorphic mappings from a Riemann surface to itself, concentrating on the classical case of rational maps of the Riemann sphere. They are based on

A general framework for investigating topological actions of Z d on compact metric spaces was proposed by Boyle and Lind in terms of expansive behavior along lower dimensional subspaces of R d. Here

Let be an action of Z d by continuous automorphisms of a compact abelian group X. A point x in X is called homoclinic for if n x ! 0X as knk ! 1. We study the set (X) of homoclinic points for , which
THIS is a text–book intended primarily for undergraduates. It is designed to give a broad basis of knowledge comprising such theories and theorems in those parts of algebra which are mentioned in the
Basic Number Theory
The first goal of algebraic number theory is the generalization of the theorem on the unique representation of natural numbers as products of prime numbers to algebraic numbers. Gauss considered the
Expansive Subdynamics
This paper provides a framework for studying the dynamics of commuting homeomorphisms. Let α be a continuous action of Zd on an infinite compact metric space. For each subspace V of Rd we introduce a
