Minimal ensembles without maximal entropy measures. (Ensembles minimaux sans mesure d’entropie maximale.) (French) Zbl 0358.28007

There has been a great deal of interest in recent years in the consideration of invariant measures for compact dynamical systems for which the measure theoretic entropy is equal to the topological entropy: measures with maximal entropy. In this paper the author constructs a compact minimal dynamical system with topological entropy equal to 1 and which has no measure with maximal entropy. The construction is a generalization of a construction described in section 27 of the lecture notes “Ergodic Theory in Compact Spaces” by M. Denker, C.Grillenberger, K.Sigmund [Lecture Notes Math. 527 (1976; Zbl 0328.28008)].
