Markov partitions for hyperbolic sets

Todd Fisher and Himal Rathnakumara

Vol. 2 (2009), No. 5, 549–557
Abstract

We show that if f is a diffeomorphism of a manifold to itself, Λ is a mixing (or transitive) hyperbolic set, and V is a neighborhood of Λ, then there exists a mixing (or transitive) hyperbolic set Λ̃ with a Markov partition such that Λ Λ̃ V . We also show that in the topologically mixing case the set Λ̃ will have a unique measure of maximal entropy.

Keywords
