Title: The K Property for Equilibrium States of Flows with an Application to Geodesic Flows in Nonpositive Curvature

Speaker: Benjamin Call – The Ohio State University

Abstract: I will present some easy to state assumptions to show that a wide class of equilibrium states have the K property, which is a mixing property stronger than mixing of all orders and weaker than Bernoulli. I will then discuss an application to the setting of geodesic flows on Riemannian manifolds with nonpositive curvature for the class of equilibrium states studied by Burns-Climenhaga-Fisher-Thompson. This is joint work with Dan Thompson.
