# Sinai’s Moscow Seminar on Dynamical Systems

This book is a collection of papers written by participants in
the seminar of Ya. G. Sinai, which has for thirty years played
the leading role in shaping the modern statistical and topological
theory of dynamical systems. The seminar has served as the major place
for new ideas and approaches in the ergodic theory of
dynamical systems.

These papers, written by internationally known
mathematicians, represent the major part of the enormous variety of
Sinai's scientific interests. The following topics are discussed:
hyperbolic dynamical systems, limit theorems for dynamical systems with
chaotic behavior, thermodynamic formalism, symbolic dynamics, symplectic
geometry, statistical mechanics, and more.

The book reflects the unique style of Sinai's school and its interest
in various interconnections between ergodic theory and various other
branches of mathematics and physics.
