Title: Entropy locking

Abstract: Consider discontinuous piecewise linear interval maps with two pieces, where the map is increasing on one piece and decreasing on the other piece. Often the topological entropy depends only on the slopes, not on the size of the jump at the discontinuity point. We present a simple explanation of this phenomenon. This is joint work with David Cosper.
