Six Lectures on Symbolic Dynamics

Shrihari Sridharan
Chennai Mathematical Institute.


Starting off with the basic setting of symbolic dynamics, we shall in this lecture series study about invariant measures, ergodicity properties and the concept of mixing. We shall also investigate the entropy of such maps and its relation to the topological pressure. We shall study many examples as we move along.
