By C. E. Silva

This ebook is an advent to uncomplicated recommendations in ergodic thought akin to recurrence, ergodicity, the ergodic theorem, blending, and susceptible blending. It doesn't suppose wisdom of degree concept; all of the effects wanted from degree idea are provided from scratch. specifically, the publication contains a designated building of the Lebesgue degree at the actual line and an creation to degree areas as much as the Caratheodory extension theorem. It additionally develops the Lebesgue idea of integration, together with the ruled convergence theorem and an creation to the Lebesgue $L^p$spaces. a number of examples of a dynamical approach are constructed intimately to demonstrate a number of dynamical options. those comprise particularly the baker's transformation, irrational rotations, the dyadic odometer, the Hajian-Kakutani transformation, the Gauss transformation, and the Chacon transformation. there's a distinct dialogue of slicing and stacking alterations in ergodic thought. The publication contains a number of workouts and a few open inquiries to supply the flavour of present learn. The publication additionally introduces a few notions from topological dynamics, reminiscent of minimality, transitivity and symbolic areas; and develops a few metric topology, together with the Baire class theorem
