On a problem of Gauss-Kuzmin type for continued fraction with odd partial quotients. (English) Zbl 0563.28012
Let x be a number of the unit interval. Then x may be written in a unique way as a continued fraction $$x=1/(\alpha_ 1(x)+\epsilon_ 1(x)/(\alpha_ 2(x)+\epsilon_ 2(x)/(\alpha_ 3(x)+...))$$ where $$\epsilon_ n\in \{-1,1\}$$, $$\alpha_ n\geq 1$$, $$\alpha_ n\equiv 1(mod 2)$$ and $$\alpha_ n+\epsilon_ n>1$$. Using the ergodic behaviour of a certain homogeneous random system with complete connections we solve a variant of Gauss-Kuzmin problem for the above expansion.
