Title:Density of SL(2, R) valued cocycles with positive Lyapunov exponents in the smooth category
Seminar:Center for Dynamics and Geometry Seminars
Speaker:Mahesh Nerurkar, Rutgers
We study the density of SL(2,R) valued cocycles with `desired dynamical properties' in the smooth category. Our cocycles arise as the fundamental matrix solutions to linear differential equations with quasi-periodic coefficients. In perticular we shall show that those with positive Lyapunov exponents are dense if the rotation number of the irrational winding flow satisfies a Liouville type fast periodic approximation condition.
