The course is aimed to introduce the main mathematical ideas about the transfer operator method in order to answer the questions outlined above, trying to reduce and simplify the formalism as much as possible. The theoretical part of the course will be followed every afternoon by an "examples and exercises" session, where we will use software implemented for the purpose of studying the statistical properties of dynamical systems. We recommend each student to participate with his personal computer.
Monday through Friday Lectures: 9.00 - 10:30 and 11:00 -12:30
Monday through Thursday Study groups, numerical methods and examples: 15:00 - 17:00
