Summary: University of Crete
Department of Mathematics
Ergodic Theory of Dynamical Systems
from a geometric point of view
These notes grew out of two series of lectures I gave in the years 199495. The
first was given jointly with D. Gatzouras in the Department of Mathematics of the
University of Crete and coverd general Ergodic Theory. Chapters 1, 4 and the first
two sections of chapter 3 are based on parts of this series of lectures. The rest of
these notes are based on lectures given to the members of the research group of P.
I want to thank all colleagues who attended the lectures for their comments and
suggestions. Especially, I want to thank D. Gatzouras for his help, and E. Me
nioudaki who red the notes and lectured on a large part of them in the Department
of Mathematics of the University of Crete during the academic year 20012002.
