# Thermodynamical Formalism and Multifractal Analysis for Meromorphic Functions of Finite Order

Share this page
*Volker Mayer; Mariusz Urbański*

The thermodynamical formalism has been
developed by the authors for a very general class of transcendental
meromorphic functions. A function \(f:\mathbb{C}\to\hat{{\mathbb
C}}\) of this class is called dynamically (semi-) regular. The key
point in the authors' earlier paper (2008) was that one worked with a
well chosen Riemannian metric space \((\hat{{\mathbb C}} ,
\sigma)\) and that the Nevanlinna theory was employed.

In the present manuscript the authors first improve upon their
earlier paper in providing a systematic account of the thermodynamical
formalism for such a meromorphic function \(f\) and all
potentials that are Hölder perturbations of
\(-t\log|f'|_\sigma\). In this general setting, they prove the
variational principle, they show the existence and uniqueness of Gibbs
states (with the definition appropriately adapted for the
transcendental case) and equilibrium states of such potentials, and
they demonstrate that they coincide. There is also given a detailed
description of spectral and asymptotic properties (spectral gap,
Ionescu-Tulcea and Marinescu Inequality) of Perron-Frobenius
operators, and their stochastic consequences such as the Central Limit
Theorem, K-mixing, and exponential decay of correlations.
