The setting of this paper consists of a map making “nice” returns to a reference set. Criteria for the existence of equilibria, speed of convergence to equilibria and for the central limit theorem are given in terms of the tail of the return time function. The abstract setting considered arises naturally in differentiable dynamical systems with some expanding or hyperbolic properties.
