Many intermingled basins in dimension 3

  • Christian BonattiEmail author
  • Rafael Potrie


We construct a diffeomorphism of T3 admitting any finite or countable number of physical measures with intermingled basins. The examples are partially hyperbolic with splitting TT3 = E cs E u and can be made volume hyperbolic and topologically mixing.
