Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (ASIC, volume 464)


We discuss various results about weighted dynamical zeta functions for real and complex hyperbolic dynamical systems, mainly their relationship with transfer operators.

Key words

zeta function Ruelle zeta function transfer operator thermodynamic formalism Fredholm determinant expanding map Axiom A hyperbolic map interval map
