We introduce and study skew product Smale endomorphisms over finitely irreducible topological Markov shifts with countable alphabets. We prove that almost all conditional measures of equilibrium states of summable and locally Holder continuous potentials are dimensionally exact, and that their dimension is equal to the ratio of the (global) entropy and the Lyapunov exponent. We also prove for them a formula of Bowen type for the Hausdorff dimension of all fibers. Read More

In this article we consider the general setting of conformal graph directed Markov systems modeled by countable state symbolic subshifts of finite type. We deal with two classes of such systems: attracting and parabolic. The latter being treated by means of the former. Read More

We establish a new connection between metric Diophantine approximation and the parametric geometry of numbers by proving a variational principle facilitating the computation of the Hausdorff and packing dimensions of many sets of interest in Diophantine approximation. In particular, we show that the Hausdorff and packing dimensions of the set of singular $m\times n$ matrices are both equal to $mn \big(1-\frac1{m+n}\big)$, thus proving a conjecture of Kadyrov, Kleinbock, Lindenstrauss, and Margulis (preprint 2014) as well as answering a question of Bugeaud, Cheung, and Chevallier (preprint 2016). We introduce the notion of a $template$, which generalizes the notion of a $rigid$ $system$ (Roy, 2015) to the setting of matrix approximation. Read More

The study of escape rates for a ball in a dynamical systems has been much studied. Understanding the asymptotic behavior of the escape rate as the radius of the ball tends to zero is an especially subtle problem. In the case of hyperbolic conformal systems this has been addressed by various authors. Read More

We highlight a connection between Diophantine approximation and the lower Assouad dimension by using information about the latter to show that the Hausdorff dimension of the set of badly approximable points that lie in certain non-conformal fractals, known as self-affine sponges, is bounded below by the dynamical dimension of these fractals. In particular, for self-affine sponges with equal Hausdorff and dynamical dimensions, the set of badly approximable points has full Hausdorff dimension in the sponge. Our results, which are the first to advance beyond the conformal setting, encompass both the case of Sierpi\'nski sponges/carpets (also known as Bedford-McMullen sponges/carpets) and the case of Bara\'nski carpets.

We introduce the concept of weakly Markov dynamical systems. We prove for them the asymptotic convergence, along the radii of relative Lebesgue measure converging very fast to one, to the exponential law of the distribution of the the first return times to almost every shrinking ball. We prove that weakly Markov dynamical systems include such large classes of smooth dynamical systems as expanding repellers, holomorphic endomorphisms of complex projective spaces, and Axiom A diffeomorphisms (none of them are assumed to be conformal) and conformal ones such as conformal iterated function systems, conformal graph directed Markov systems, conformal expanding repellers, rational functions of the Riemann sphere, and transcendental meromorphic functions.

We develop a comprehensive theory of conformal graph directed Markov systems in the non-Riemannian setting of Carnot groups equipped with a sub-Riemannian metric. In particular, we develop the thermodynamic formalism and show that, under natural hypotheses, the limit set of an Carnot conformal GDMS has Hausdorff dimension given by Bowen's parameter. We illustrate our results for a variety of examples of both linear and nonlinear iterated function systems and graph directed Markov systems in such sub-Riemannian spaces. Read More

Analyticity results of expected pressure and invariant densities in the context of random dynamics of transcendental functions are established. These are obtained by a refinement of work by Rugh leading to a simple approach to analyticity. We work under very mild dynamical assumptions. Read More

We prove that if $J$ is the limit set of an irreducible conformal iterated function system (with either finite or countably infinite alphabet), then the badly approximable vectors form a set of full Hausdorff dimension in $J$. The same is true if $J$ is the radial Julia set of an irreducible meromorphic function (either rational or transcendental). The method of proof is to find subsets of $J$ that support absolutely friendly and Ahlfors regular measures of large dimension. Read More

We prove a generalization of Tukia's ('85) isomorphism theorem which states that isomorphisms between geometrically finite groups extend equivariantly to the boundary. Tukia worked in the setting of real hyperbolic spaces of finite dimension, and his theorem cannot be generalized as stated to the setting of CAT($-1$) spaces. We exhibit examples of type-preserving isomorphisms of geometrically finite subgroups of finite-dimensional rank one symmetric spaces of noncompact type (ROSSONCTs) whose boundary extensions are not quasisymmetric. Read More

We present a new method of proving the Diophantine extremality of various dynamically defined measures, vastly expanding the class of measures known to be extremal. This generalizes and improves the celebrated theorem of Kleinbock and Margulis ('98) resolving Sprind\v{z}uk's conjecture, as well as its extension by Kleinbock, Lindenstrauss, and Weiss ('04), hereafter abbreviated KLW. As applications we prove the extremality of all hyperbolic measures of smooth dynamical systems with sufficiently large Hausdorff dimension, and of the Patterson--Sullivan measures of all nonplanar geometrically finite groups. Read More

We study conformal iterated function systems (IFS) $\mathcal S = \{\phi_i\}_{i \in I}$ with arbitrary overlaps, and measures $\mu$ on limit sets $\Lambda$, which are projections of equilibrium measures $\hat \mu$ with respect to a certain lift map $\Phi$ on $\Sigma_I^+ \times \Lambda$. No type of Open Set Condition is assumed. We introduce a notion of overlap function and overlap number for such a measure $\hat \mu$ with respect to $\mathcal S$; and, in particular a notion of (topological) overlap number $o(\mathcal S)$. Read More

We deal with countable alphabet locally compact random subshifts of finite type (the latter merely meaning that the symbol space is generated by an incidence matrix) under the absence of Big Images Property and under the absence of uniform positivity of the transfer operator. We first establish the existence of random conformal measures along with good bounds for the iterates of the Perron-Frobenius operator. Then, using the technique of positive cones and proving a version of Bowen's type contraction (see \cite{Bow75}), we also establish a fairly complete thermodynamical formalism. Read More

Let $\Lambda$ be the limit set of a conformal dynamical system, i.e. a Kleinian group acting on either finite- or infinite-dimensional real Hilbert space, a conformal iterated function system, or a rational function. Read More

We provide a closed formula of Bowen type for the Hausdorff dimension of a very general shrinking target scheme generated by the non-autonomous dynamical system on the interval $[0,1)$, viewed as $\mathbb{R}/\mathbb{Z}$, corresponding to a given method of Cantor series expansion. We also examine a wide class of examples utilizing our theorem. In particular, we provide a Diophantine approximation interpretation of our scheme. Read More

This work concerns random dynamics of hyperbolic entire and meromorphic functions of finite order and whose derivative satisfies some growth condition at infinity. This class contains most of the classical families of transcendental functions and goes much beyond. Based on uniform versions of Nevanlinna's value distribution theory we first build a thermodynamical formalism which, in particular, produces unique geometric and fiberwise invariant Gibbs states. Read More

We consider the relation between geometrically finite groups and their limit sets in infinite-dimensional hyperbolic space. Specifically, we show that a rigidity theorem of Susskind and Swarup ('92) generalizes to infinite dimensions, while a stronger rigidity theorem of Yang and Jiang ('10) does not. Read More

Our monograph presents the foundations of the theory of groups and semigroups acting isometrically on Gromov hyperbolic metric spaces. Our work unifies and extends a long list of results by many authors. We make it a point to avoid any assumption of properness/compactness, keeping in mind the motivating example of $\mathbb H^\infty$, the infinite-dimensional rank-one symmetric space of noncompact type over the reals. Read More

We study invariant measures for random countable (finite or infinite) conformal iterated function systems (IFS) with arbitrary overlaps. We do not assume any type of separation condition. We prove, under a mild assumption of finite entropy, the dimensional exactness of the projections of invariant measures from the shift space, and we give a formula for their dimension, in the context of random infinite conformal iterated function systems with overlaps. Read More

We consider singular integrals associated to homogeneous kernels on self similar sets. Using ideas from ergodic theory we prove, among other things, that in Euclidean spaces the principal values of singular integrals associated to real analytic, homogeneous kernels fail to exist a.e. Read More

We prove that in any metric space $(X,d)$ the singular integral operators {equation*} T^k_{\mu,\ve}(f)(x)=\int_{X\setminus B(x,\varepsilon)}k(x,y)f(y)d\mu (y).{equation*} converge weakly in some dense subspaces of $L^2(\mu)$ under minimal regularity assumptions for the measures and the kernels. Read More

In this paper, we extend the theory of simultaneous Diophantine approximation to infinite dimensions. Moreover, we discuss Dirichlet-type theorems in a very general framework and define what it means for such a theorem to be optimal. We show that optimality is implied by but does not imply the existence of badly approximable points. Read More

In this paper, we provide a complete theory of Diophantine approximation in the limit set of a group acting on a Gromov hyperbolic metric space. This summarizes and completes a long line of results by many authors, from Patterson's classic '76 paper to more recent results of Hersonsky and Paulin ('02, '04, '07). Concrete examples of situations we consider which have not been considered before include geometrically infinite Kleinian groups, geometrically finite Kleinian groups where the approximating point is not a fixed point of the group, and groups acting on infinite-dimensional hyperbolic space. Read More

We study non-autonomous conformal iterated function systems, with finite or countably infinite alphabet alike. These differ from the usual (autonomous) iterated function systems in that the contractions applied at each step in time are allowed to vary. (In the case where all maps are affine similarities, the resulting system is also called a "Moran set construction". Read More

Motivated by the work of D. Y. Kleinbock, E. Read More

This note concerns non-autonomous dynamics of rational functions and, more precisely, the fractal behavior of the Julia sets under perturbation of non-autonomous systems. We provide a necessary and sufficient condition for holomorphic stability which leads to H\"older continuity of dimensions of hyperbolic non-autonomous Julia sets with respect to the $l^\infty$-topology on the parameter space. On the other hand we show that, for some particular family, the Hausdorff and packing dimension functions are not differentiable at any point and that these dimensions are not equal on an open dense set of the parameter space still with respect to the $l^\infty$-topology. Read More

This paper deals with both complex dynamical systems and conformal iterated function systems. We study finitely generated expanding semigroups of rational maps with overlaps on the Riemann sphere. We show that if a $d$-parameter family of such semigroups satisfies the transversality condition, then for almost every parameter value the Hausdorff dimension of the Julia set is the minimum of 2 and the zero of the pressure function.

In this paper we deal with the following family of exponential maps $(f_\lambda:z\mapsto \lambda(e^z-1))_{\lambda\in [1,+\infty)}$. Denoting $d(\lambda)$ the hyperbolic dimension of $f_\lambda$. It is known that the function $\lambda\mapsto d(\lambda)$ is real analytic in $(1,+\infty)$, and that it is continuous in $[1,+\infty)$. Read More

We consider the dynamics of rational semigroups (semigroups of rational maps) on the Riemann sphere. We estimate the Bowen parameters (zeros of the pressure functions) and the Hausdorff dimensions of the Julia sets of expanding finitely generated rational semigroups. We show that the Bowen parameter is larger than or equal to the ratio of the entropy of the skew product map $F$ and the Lyapunov exponent of $F$ with respect to the maximal entropy measure for $F$. Read More

We use the inverse pressure concept to estimate the stable dimension for hyperbolic non-invertible maps which are conformal in the stable fibers. The non-invertible case is different than the diffeomorphism case. In particular we show that if the map is open on the respective basic set, then the stable dimension is constant everywhere. Read More

We consider the dynamics of semi-hyperbolic semigroups generated by finitely many rational maps on the Riemann sphere. Assuming that the nice open set condition holds it is proved that there exists a geometric measure on the Julia set with exponent $h$ equal to the Hausdorff dimension of the Julia set. Both $h$-dimensional Hausdorff and packing measures are finite and positive on the Julia set and are mutually equivalent with Radon-Nikodym derivatives uniformly separated from zero and infinity. Read More

We derive the multifractal analysis of the conformal measure (or equivalently, the invariant measure) associated to a family of weights imposed upon a (multi-dimensional) graph directed Markov system (GDMS) using balls as the filtration. This analysis is done over a large subset of the limit set. In particular, it coincides with the limit set when the GDMS under scrutiny satisfies a boundary separation condition. Read More

This paper deals with analytic families of holomorphic iterated function systems. Using real analyticity of the pressure function (which we prove), we establish a classification theorem for analytic families of holomorphic iterated function systems which depend continuously on a parameter when the space of holomorphic iterated function systems is endowed with the "$\lambda$-topology". This classification theorem allows us to generalize some geometric results from the paper ("Lambda-Topology vs. Read More

In this paper we define distance expanding random dynamical systems. We develop the appropriate thermodynamic formalism of such systems. We obtain in particular the existence and uniqueness of invariant Gibbs states, the appropriate pressure function and exponentially fast convergence of iterates of Perron-Frobenius operators resulting, in particular, in an exponential decay of correlations. Read More

The ergodic theory and geometry of the Julia set of meromorphic functions on the complex plane with polynomial Schwarzian derivative is investigated under the condition that the forward trajectory of asymptotic values in the Julia set is bounded and the map $f$ restricted to its closure is expanding, the property refered to as sub-expanding. We first show the existence, uniqueness, conservativity and ergodicity of a conformal measure $m$ with minimal exponent $h$; furthermore, we show weak metrical exactness of this measure. Then we prove the existence of a $\sg$--finite invariant measure $\mu$ absolutely continuous with respect to $m$. Read More

We consider the dynamics of skew product maps associated with finitely generated semigroups of rational maps on the Riemann sphere. We show that under some conditions on the dynamics and the potential function \psi, there exists a unique equilibrium state for \psi and a unique $\exp(\P(\psi)-\psi)$-conformal measure, where P(\psi) denotes the topological pressure of \psi. Read More

We consider the dynamics of expanding semigroups generated by finitely many rational maps on the Riemann sphere. We show that for an analytic family of such semigroups, the Bowen parameter function is real-analytic and plurisubharmonic. Combining this with a result obtained by the first author, we show that if for each semigroup of such an analytic family of expanding semigroups satisfies the open set condition, then the function of the Hausdorff dimension of the Julia set is real-analytic and plurisubharmonic. Read More

We give a description of the level sets in the higher dimensional multifractal formalism for infinite conformal graph directed Markov systems. If these systems possess a certain degree of regularity this description is complete in the sense that we identify all values with non-empty level sets and determine their Hausdorff dimension. This result is also partially new for the finite alphabet case. Read More

We first use Nevanlinna theory to provide full thermodynamical formalism for a very general class of meromorphic functions of finite order. Finer stochastic properties of the Perron-Frobenius operator are given and finally we provide the multifractal analysis of Gibbs states. Read More

Working with well chosen Riemannian metrics and employing Nevanlinna's theory, we make the thermodynamical formalism work for a wide class of hyperbolic meromorphic functions of finite order (including in particular exponential family, elliptic functions, cosine, tangent and the cosine--root family and also compositions of these functions with arbitrary polynomials). In particular, the existence of conformal (Gibbs) measures is established and then the existence of probability invariant measures equivalent to conformal measures is proven. As a geometric consequence of the developed thermodynamic formalism, a version of Bowen's formula expressing the Hausdorff dimension of the radial Julia set as the zero of the pressure function and, moreover, the real analyticity of this dimension, is proved.

Recently O. Sarig has introduced and explored the concept of positively recurrent functions. In this paper we construct a natural wide class of such functions and we showthat they have stronger ergodic properties than the general functions considered in Sarig's paper. Read More
