This book is aimed at mathematicians interested in such topics as ergodic theory, topological dynamics, constructive quantum field theory, the study of certain differentiable dynamical systems, notably Anosov diffeomorphisms and flows. It is also of interest to theoretical physicists concerned with the conceptual basis of equilibrium statistical mechanics. The level of the presentation is generally an advanced one, with the objective of providing an efficient research tool and a text for use in graduate teaching.

Book Description:

Reissued in the Cambridge Mathematical Library, this classic book outlines the theory of thermodynamic formalism which was developed to describe the properties of certain physical systems consisting of a large number of subunits. Background material on physics has been collected in appendices to help the reader. Supplementary work is provided in the form of exercises and problems that were "open" at the original time of writing which are now included at the end of the book.

About the Author:

David Ruelle is a Professor Emeritus at Institut des Hautes etudes Scientifiques, Bures-sur-Yvette, Paris.
