    This book is a systematic introduction to smooth ergodic theory. The topics discussed include the general (abstract) theory of Lyapunov exponents and its applications to the stability theory of differential equations, stable manifold theory, absolute continuity, and the ergodic theory of dynamical systems with nonzero Lyapunov exponents (including geodesic flows).

    The authors consider several nontrivial examples of dynamical systems with nonzero Lyapunov exponents to illustrate some basic methods and ideas of the theory.

    This book is self-contained. The reader needs a basic knowledge of real analysis, measure theory, differential equations, and topology. The authors present basic concepts of smooth ergodic theory and provide complete proofs of the main results. They also state some more advanced results to give readers a broader view of smooth ergodic theory. This volume may be used by those nonexperts who wish to become familiar with the field.

    • Even though there are a very great number of publications on this subject, the book from Barreira and Pesin in the first comprehensive textbook. It is highly worth recommending both to advanced and interested students and to scientists working on dynamical systems … The book is self-contained and gets by to a great extent without additional references. It has a clear and well thought-out structure and forgoes any unnecessary complexity of notation.

      translated from Jahresbericht der Deutschen Mathematiker-Vereinigung
    • Compact and useful self-contained book … a rich array of examples … this is a handy and lucid book on a tricky subject.
