Dynamical entropy of quasi-local algebras in quantum statistical mechanics

  • Yong Moon Park
  • Hyun Hye Shin


We study the dynamical entropy in the sense of Connes, Narnhofer, and Thirring of automorphisms on quasi-local algebras in quantum statistical mechanics. We extend their Kolmogorov-Sinai type theorem for AF-algebras to quasi-local algebras which are not necessarily AF-algebras.
