Hyperbolic groupoids: metric and measureVolodymyr V. Nekrashevych (1) Texas A&M University, College Station, United States
We construct Patterson–Sullivan measure and a natural metric on the unit space of a hyperbolic groupoid. In particular, this gives a new approach to defining SRB measures on Smale spaces and Anosov flows using Gromov hyperbolic graphs. Other results include a duality theory for hyperbolic groupoids graded by Hölder continuous Busemann cocycles, and a characterization of visual metrics.
Keywords: Patterson–Sullivan measure, visual metric, SRB measure, hyperbolic groupoids, hyperbolic graphs
