About the Project

This project aims to study ergodic properties of infinite dimensional systems of interacting chaotic units, e.g. units where the dynamics is (non)-uniformly hyperbolic. The project will focus on two types of interactions between the chaotic units: the first one considers rare but strong interactions between neighbouring units, while the second type models an average or effective interaction between all units​. The goal of the project is to investigate conditions under which such infinite dimensional systems admit a unique equilibrium, represented by a Sinai-Ruelle-Bowen measure, to determine rates of convergence to equilibrium, and to study the effect of the interaction strength on the behaviour of the system.
