<p style='text-indent:20px;'>Starting with a positive linear operator we apply the Kantorovich modification and a related modification. The resulting operators are investigated. We are interested in the eigenstructure, Voronovskaya formula, the induced generalized convexity, invariant measures and iterates. Some known results from the literature are extended.</p>
In this paper, we investigate the existence of random absolutely continuous invariant measures (ACIP) for random expanding on average Saussol maps in higher dimensions. This is done by the establishment of a random Lasota–Yorke inequality for the transfer operators on the space of bounded oscillation. We prove that the number of ergodic skew product ACIPs is finite and will provide an upper bound for the number of these ergodic ACIPs. This work can be seen as a generalization of the work in [F. Batayneh and C. González-Tokman, On the number of invariant measures for random expanding maps in higher dimensions, Discrete Contin. Dyn. Syst. 41 (2021) 5887–5914] on admissible random Jabłoński maps to a more general class of higher-dimensional random maps.
We define the notions of strong and strict recurrency for actions of countable ordered groups on $\sigma$-finite non atomic measure spaces with quasi-invariant measures. We show that strong recurrency is equivalent to non existence of weakly wandering sets of positive measure. We also show that for certain p.m.p ergodic actions the system is not strictly recurrent, which shows that strong and strict recurrency are not equivalent.
We are interested in dendrites for which all invariant measures of zero-entropy mappings have discrete spectrum, and we prove that this holds when the closure of the endpoint set of the dendrites is countable. This solves an open question which has been around for awhile, and almost completes the characterization of dendrites with this property.
