An analogue of Mertens' theorem for closed orbits of Axiom A flows

  • Richard Sharp


For an Axiom A flow restricted to a basic set we prove an analogue of Mertens' theorem of prime number theory. The result is also established for the geodesic flow on a non-compact, finite area surface of constant negative curvature. Applying this to the modular surface yields some asymptotic formulae concerning quadratic forms.
