Course Description

The aim of this course is to introduce the basic ingredients in ergodic theory. Topics include the mean and pointwise ergodic theorems, recurrence, ergodicity, mixing properties, information, measure-theoretic entropy, topological entropy, variational principle.

The background necessary for this course is some knowledge of measure theory and function analysis; for example, the contents of Royden's Real Analysis suffice
