Subexponential decay of correlations

  • Omri Sarig


We describe a method for proving subexponential lower bounds for correlations functions, and apply it to study decay of correlations for maps with countable Markov partitions. One result is that LS Young’s upper estimates [Y2] are optimal in many situations. Our method is based on a general result concerning the asymptotics of renewal sequences of bounded operators acting on Banach spaces, which we apply to the iterates of the transfer operator.
