Lyapunov spectrum for geodesic flows of rank 1 surfaces

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • We give estimates on the Hausdorff dimension of the levels sets of the Lyapunov exponent for the geodesic flow of a compact rank 1 surface. We show that the level sets of points with small (but non-zero) exponents has full Hausdorff dimension, but carries small topological entropy.
