In recent years the application of the transfer operator method in the study of Selberg zeta functions and the spectral theory of hyperbolic spaces has made significant progress, in both analytical investigations and numerical investigations. We consider transfer operators for the geodesic flow on surfaces of constant negative curvature, therefore systems where a particle is moving freely on such a surface with constant velocity.
