The Patterson Measure: Classics, Variations and Applications

Conference paper
Part of the Springer Proceedings in Mathematics book series (PROM, volume 9)


This survey is dedicated to S. J. Patterson’s 60th birthday in recognition of his seminal contribution to measurable conformal dynamics and fractal geometry. It focuses on construction principles for conformal measures for Kleinian groups, symbolic dynamics, rational functions and more general dynamical systems, due to Patterson, Bowen-Ruelle, Sullivan and Denker-Urbański.
