There has been a great resurgence of interest in the field, due in large measure to the pioneering work of Dennis Sullivan. Tools have been developed and applied with outstanding success to many deep problems. The ergodic theory of discrete groups has become a substantial field of mathematical research in its own right, and it is the aim of this book to provide a rigorous introduction from first principles to some of the major aspects of the theory. The particular focus of the book is on the remarkable measure supported on the limit set of a discrete group that was first developed by S. J. Patterson for Fuchsian groups, and later extended and refined by Sullivan. 0aErgodic theory 0aDiscrete groups08iPrint version: z9780521376747 dCambridge 0aLondon Mathematical Society Lecture Note Series ;vno. 143.40uhttp://dx.doi.org/10.1017/CBO9780511600678
