Title:Homeomorphic Bernoulli Trial Measures and Ergodic Theory
Seminar:Center for Dynamics and Geometry Seminars
Speaker:Dan Mauldin, University of North Texas
Abstract:
We discuss the problem of determining when one Bernoulli trial measure generated by infinitely many independent Bernoulli trials each with success probability r is a homeomorphic image of another with probability of success s. We also discuss the conjecture that if r the probability of success is a certain sort of algebraic number then, there is a homeomorphism preserving the Bernoulli trial measure and having exactly k ergodic measures, all of them Bernoulli trial measures corresponding to the algebraic conjugates of r.
