Title:Large deviations for coded systems
Seminar:Center for Dynamics and Geometry Seminars
Speaker:Dan Thompson, Ohio State University
We establish a Large Deviations Principle (LDP) for a large class of symbolic systems previously studied by Climenhaga and myself. The techniques are suitable for adaptation beyond the symbolic setting, and provide a new framework to establish LDP for systems with non-uniform structure. I will begin with a brief summary of the theory of Large Deviations in dynamical systems. I will explain the results via the application to the S-gap shifts: a natural family of symbolic spaces which are easy to define but which can be challenging to study! This is joint work (in progress) with Vaughn Climenhaga (Houston) and Kenichiro Yamamoto (Tokyo Denki).
