The book is reasonably concrete and short and treats the important “cutting and stacking” constructions in detail. An excellent suggestion indeed. When you say beginner, do you mean grad student or otherwise? By using our website you agree to our use of cookies. This is a very extensive book, but it is kind of deep, and in my opinion, doesn’t suitable fro students although he for example discuss the general notion of ergodic group action, besides Z or R actions.

Introduction to Topological Manifolds John M. This is a nice book to get theoy solid background in isomorphism theory of measurable dynamical systems.

Riemannian Geometry Peter Petersen. Looking for beautiful books? Some examples are described and are studied in detail when new properties are presented. The mathematical prerequisites are summarized in Chapter 0. thoery

This book makes for beautiful reading. I think that overall, Petersen’s book is good as well, maybe not as streamlined as one might expect, but still very through. I have learned topological dynamics from this textbook. David Roberts, Yes, these are the books.


Check out the top books of the year on our page Best Books of Topology and Geometry Glen E. Ergodic Theory on Lebesgue Spaces”, it is one of wslters most accurate books in the technical level Lebesgue spaces, ergodic decompositionplus it have nice treatments of the theory of joinings and entropy.

I second this, especially if Petersen has been tried. I second Siming Tu’s recommendation for E-W book. Table of contents 0 Preliminaries.

The first part of the text is concerned with measure-preserving Home Contact Us Help Free delivery worldwide. Nevertheless, it does not as extensive as E-W or Petersen on the ergodic theoretic part, but it definitely worth your time after you got the hang of the basics.

Topological entropy is introduced and related to measure-theoretic entropy. The family of invariant probability measures for such a transformation is studied and related to properties of the transformation such as topological traitivity, minimality, the size of the non-wandering set, and existence of periodic points.

I am looking for something well structured, well motivated, and thekry with application to other fields. Common terms and phrases abelian group affine transformation Bernoulli automorphism Bernoulli shifts Borel subsets choose compact metric space conjugacy conjugate consider constant a.

Email Required, but never shown. Princeton University Press, Princeton, N. Two chapters deal with entropy. Mathematical Methods of Classical Walter V. Several examples are studied in detail. The only problem is that it’s hard to get a copy. It treats, among others, invariant measures, translations on compact abelian groups, geodesic flows on Riemannian manifolds; it gives applications to number theory and discusses ergodic theory of ideal gas as applications to “other fields” introducgion you may be interested in.

This only will help you with the measurable setting and is an older book, though.
