Title:Conformal Measures for Transient Markov Shifts
Seminar:Center for Dynamics and Geometry Seminars
Speaker:Van Cyr, PSU
Abstract:
In this talk we will explore the thermodynamic formalism of countable Markov shifts exhibiting transience. The main goal will be to construct a conformal measure for locally compact transient shifts using some insight from the theory of Martin boundaries for Markov chains; examples will be given where it is non-unique (corresponding to a "phase transition" for the system). We will also defi ne a generalized thermodynamic limit and examine some of its properties.
