Non Uniformly Hyperbolic Dynamical Systems. Coupling and Renewal Theory
February 20 – 24, 2017

We would like to explore the statistical properties of uniformly and non-uniformly hyperbolic dynamical systems in terms of maps and flows,  and also in the framework of Teichmüller dynamics,  with the objective to establish limit theorems using new and promising techiques, including:

  • Kontsevich -Zorich cocycles and  Lyapunov exponents.
  • Banach anisotropic spaces, which recently allowed to prove the exponential decay of correlations for the Sinai billiard flow.
  • Coupling, particularly in the context of the theory of standard families developed by Chernov and Dolgopiat
  • Renewal theory with applications to sigma-finite measures.
  • Spectral theory of transfer operator, using ideas and methods from  micro-local analysis.

There are also dynamic systems of different nature which exhibit very rich statistical behaviors and which are the subject of intense research nowadays, in particular:

  • the  « fast-slow »  systems, with applications to transport theory and « rough paths ».
  • Non-autonomous systems, such as sequential or random dynamical systems.
  • Open systems, especially in higher dimensions and for perturbed systems, and their connection with the Lyapunov spectra.

« We the organizers of this conference affirm that scientific events must be open to everyone, regardless of race, sex, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, age, pregnancy, immigration status, or any other aspect of identity. We believe that such events must be supportive, inclusive, and safe environments for all participants. We believe that all participants are to be treated with dignity and respect. Discrimination and harassment cannot be tolerated. We are committed to ensuring that the conference Non Uniformly Hyperbolic Dynamical Systems. Coupling and Renewal Theory follows these principles.
