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.

A certain category of infinite strings of letters on a finite alphabet is presented here, chosen among the 'simplest' possible one may build, both because they are very deterministic and because they are built by simple rules.

We review some basic notions in ergodic theory and thermodynamic formalism, as well as introductory results in the context of max-plus algebra, in order to exhibit some properties of equilibrium measures when temperature goes to zero.

These notes cover a very short introduction to measure-theoretic and topological entropy, and are aimed at understanding part of Yuzvinskii's formula for the entropy of compact group automorphisms. Based on a course at the Ohio State University.

This tutorial will develop the basics ingredients necessary for modeling simple non-linear dynamical systems. The goal is to demonstrate you that you can develop significant insight into the behavior of non-linear systems with just a little math.
