Narrow equidistribution and counting of closed geodesics on noncompact manifoldsBarbara Schapira and Samuel Tapie (1) Université de Rennes 1, France

We prove the equidistribution of (weighted) periodic orbits for the geodesic flow on noncompact negatively curved manifolds toward equilibrium states in the narrow topology, i.e. in the dual of bounded continuous functions. We deduce an exact asymptotic counting for periodic orbits (weighted or not), which was previously known only for geometrically finite manifolds.
