Typical behaviour of extremes of chaotic dynamical systems for general observables

Presented by:

Tuesday 29th October 2013 - 11:10 to 11:45
INI Seminar Room 1
In this talk we discuss the distribution of extreme events for a chaotic dynamical system for a general class of observables. More precisely, we link directly the distribution of events over threshold to the local geometrical structure on the surface of the attractor. It is shown how this can provide us with information about the local stable and unstable dimensions. Using Ruelle's response theory, we discuss the sensitivity of the parameters of the distribution under perturbations. This is a joint work with Vlaerio Lucarini, Davide Faranda and Jeroen Wouters.
