Entropy in ergodic theory and topological dynamics

Manfred Einsiedler, Elon Lindenstrauss, and Thomas Ward

This is the second volume of a project that began with the volume Ergodic Theory with a view toward Number Theory by Einsiedler and Ward. This second volume aims to develop the basic machinery of measure-theoretic entropy, and topological entropy on compact spaces. This web page contains some early drafts of some of the planned chapters. Please send any comments to the authors (if possible mentioning the date of the file you are using).

A subsequent volume, Homogeneous dynamics and applications, will use the material of the first two volumes to develop the relationship between the ergodic theory of homogeneous spaces and applications in number theory.
