Finding such an invariant measure is, in general, a difficult task. Chapter 3 presents Birkhoff's Ergodic Theorem. As the statement of this theorem contains integrals, the reader is first introduced to the Lebesgue integral as the limit of integrals of simple functions.

### Ergodic theory at the University of Memphis

Standard analysis questions are presented in exercises e. I was at first disappointed to find the Ergodic Theorem only proved in ETN in the special case where the L 1 function f is a characteristic function. In retrospect, this omission is understandable. Firstly, the case proved in ETN does give a flavor of the general proof.

### The Annals of Mathematical Statistics

Secondly, if Dajani and Kraaikamp included every detail of all that is presented in ETN, their slim volume pages would have evolved into a thick tome of a much different nature. One of the major results in chapter 3 states that a GLS transformation T is ergodic with respect to Lebesgue measure. Borel's Normal Number Theorem for n-ary expansions falls simply out of this general treatment. To prove ergodicity, they resort to Knopp's Lemma. This book requires a nontrivial level of motivation on the part of the reader! Chapter 3 concludes with several beautiful results, obtained via the Ergodic Theorem, concerning continued fraction transformations.

The authors prove or assign, for example, the following results of P.

Fix a positive integer a, and let C n denote the number of occurrences of a in the first n entries in the continued fraction expansion of x. This implies, for instance, that the digit 1 occurs roughly Other intriguing results, due to A. Khintchine, are assigned. Quite a nice payoff for time invested in invariant measures and the Ergodic Theorem! Kac's Lemma is assigned as an exercise. The natural extension of a noninvertible dynamical system is introduced in chapter 4.

This part of ETN is likely more appropriate for graduate students than advanced undergraduates. The Ergodic Theorem, coupled with the natural extension machinery applied to the Gauss map, is used in chapter 5 to obtain arithmetical properties of the approximation coefficients for continued fraction expansions. The authors go on to use dynamics to provide a new proof of a generalization of Borel's theorem and to prove not assign! Chapter 5 concludes with a proof of the Doeblin-Lenstra conjecture and an introduction to other types of continued fraction expansions.

Entropy is a difficult topic to motivate and introduce to a "beginner". The sequence space is endowed with a product measure for which the probability of symbol i is denoted p i , the p i summing to 1. From this point on I found the treatment of entropy quite readable, appropriate for self-guided investigation. For example, several exercises are included to ensure understanding of the various properties of partitions.

The authors prove entropy is an isomorphism invariant, and that a measure-preserving transformation has the same entropy as its natural extension. Computation of the entropy of the continued fraction map is achieved with the help of the Shannon-McMillan-Breiman theorem. I should note that ETN does not present a detailed treatment of ergodic theory. Ergodicity and the Ergodic Theorem are used as tools to arrive at results of interest to the authors.
