Algebraic Geometry Robin Hartshorne. Mathematical Methods of Introdction Mechanics V. This text provides an introduction to ergodic theory suitable for readers knowing basic measure theory. Next time I’ll post more specific bibliography.
The second part focuses on the ergodic theory of continuous transformations of compact metrizable spaces. Goodreads waltefs the world’s largest site for readers with over 50 million reviews. An excellent suggestion indeed. This seems to have the highest content-to-volume ratio.
Introduction to Topological Manifolds John M. The mathematical prerequisites are summarized in Chapter 0.
An Introduction To Ergodic Theory
What about the following? The first part of the text is concerned with measure-preserving transformations of probability spaces; recurrence properties, mixing properties, the Birkhoff ergodic theorem, isomorphism and spectral isomorphism, and entropy theory are discussed.
I tried a book by nadkarni, and could not read through it, seemed to concise to me, and tried the book by Petersen which I felt was accessible but didn’t follow a clear path, jumping from subject to subject with lots of different object or properties. The book is reasonably concrete and short and treats the important “cutting and stacking” constructions in detail.

Product details Format Paperback pages Dimensions x x The second part of the text focuses on the ergodic theory of continuous transformations of compact metrizable spaces. Nevertheless, it does not as extensive as E-W or Petersen on the ergodic theoretic part, but it definitely worth your time after you got the hang of the basics. Two chapters deal with entropy. Topology and Geometry Glen E. Riemannian Geometry Peter Petersen. Common terms and phrases abelian group affine transformation Bernoulli automorphism Bernoulli shifts Borel subsets choose compact metric space conjugacy conjugate consider constant a.
And a forthcoming second volume will discuss about entropy,drafts of the book can be found on the homepage of Thomas Ward http: I second this, especially if Petersen has been tried.
So apart from this, which are “standard references”, and maybe also Walters’ book which is kind of dated, and the last chapters are biased towards entropy theory of continuous maps over compact spacesthere are few references which are good for specific introductiion and maybe not as a whole standard reference book. Introduction iintroduction ergodic theory.
Topological entropy is introduced and related to measure-theoretic entropy.
