Valuations and Hyperbolicity in Dynamics
by

Publisher: University of East Anglia
Number of pages: 58

Description:
These notes describe several situations in dynamics where the notion of valuations on rings provides a simple language in which to describe and exploit (analogues of) hyperbolicity. This approach goes a little beyond simply providing a convenient language.
