There are numerous degree areas isomorphic to the unit period with Lebesgue

measure, for this reason there are lots of how one can describe measure-preserving transformations

on such areas. for instance, there are translations and automorphisms of

compact metric teams, shifts on series areas (such as these triggered through stationary

processes), and flows bobbing up from mechanical platforms. it's a common question

to ask whilst such changes are isomorphic as measure-preserving

transformations. Such options as ergodicity and combining and the examine of unitary

operators brought on by way of such ameliorations have supplied a few quite coarse

answers to this isomorphism question.

The first significant breakthrough at the isomorphism quesion used to be the introduction

by Kolmogorov in 1958-59 of the concept that of entropy as an invariant for measurepreserving

transformation. In 1970, D. S. Ornstein brought a few new approximation

concepts which enabled him to set up that entropy used to be a whole invariant

for a category of ameliorations often called Bernoulli shifts. next work

by Ornstein and others has proven that a huge category of changes of physical

and mathematical curiosity are isomorphic to Bernoulli shifts.

These lecture notes grew out of my makes an attempt to appreciate and use those new

results approximately Bernoulli shifts. many of the fabric in those notes is anxious with

the facts that Bernoulli shifts with an analogous entropy are isomorphic. This

proof uses a couple of basic rules approximately walls and approximation

by periodic changes. those are conscientiously offered in Chapters 2-6. The

basic effects approximately entropy are sketched in Chapters 7-8. Ornstein's Fundamental

Lemma is proved in bankruptcy nine. this permits one to build walls with

perfect distribution and entropy as regards to these that are virtually excellent, and is the

key to acquiring the isomorphism theorem in bankruptcy 10. Chapters 11-13 contain

extensions of those effects, whereas bankruptcy 1 encompasses a precis of the measure

theory utilized in those notes. For a extra whole account of contemporary extensions of

these principles, the reader is talked about D. S. Ornstein's approaching notes.

These are the shifts associated with stationary Markov chains, and are defined as follows: Let Π be a k × k-matrix with nonnegative entries, each row of which has sum 1, and let π be a k-tuple of nonnegative numbers which sum to 1. The space X is the set of doubly infinite sequences of the symbols 1, 2, . . 1) µ{x|xi = ti , −m ≤ i ≤ n} = πt−m Πt−m t−m+1 . . Πtn−1 tn . We also assume that πΠ = Π, from which it follows that the shift T defined by (T x)n = xn+1 , n = 0, ±1, ±2, . , is µ-invariant.

It is easy to see that (N ) Πt0 t1 . . ,tN −1 (N ) where (Πij ) is the N th power of Π. ΠtN +m−1 tN +m so that (N ) µ(A ∩ B) − µ(A)µ(B) = µ(A)[Πt0 tN − πtN ]ΠtN tN +1 . . 2) that, uniformly in m, T iP . 2) that P is indeed weak Bernoulli. 1 is established once we have proved the following. 2. A weak Bernoulli partition is finitely determined. This can be proved by generalizing the proof that a partition with independent iterates is finitely determined (Ornstein’s Copying Theorem, Chapter 7). We shall describe instead a weaker condition (called ”very weak Bernoulli”), and give a proof later that very weak Bernoulli implies finitely determined.

We have k n H(T, Q) = lim H(Q| n 1 T i Q) = lim H( n n+k T iP | −k T i P ). −k+1 Note that the definition of conditional entropy gives k n+k T iP | H( −k n+k T i P ) = H( −k+1 which is equal to H(T −k P | n+k T i P ) − H( −k n+k −k+1 T i P ), −k+1 T i P ). Replace P by T k P to obtain n+2k T i P ) = H(T, P ). 1. 2. Given k and > 0, there is a δ > 0 such that if P and Q have k sets and |P − Q| ≤ δ then |H(T, P ) − H(T, Q)| ≤ . Proof. Fix δ < 1/2, and suppose |P − Q| < δ. Let k Pi ∩ Qi , Ri = Pi − R0 , 1 ≤ i ≤ k, R0 = i=1 37 and let R denote the partition {R0 , R1 , R2 , .
