Title: Finite time properties of transport in chaotic systems.
Abstract: We are used to the idea that only asymptotic in time properties of systems with “complex” dynamics should (and could) be understood rigorously. Therefore basically always asymptotics when time goes to infinity or integration over an infinite time interval are involved. I will discuss finite time properties of survival, first passage and recurrence probabilities for some classes of dynamical and stochastic systems.
