The Chebotarov theorem for Galois coverings of Axiom A flows. (English) Zbl 0626.58006
The main result gives an analogue of Chebotarev’s theorem which provides an asymptotic formula for the number of closed orbits whose Frobenius class is a given conjugacy class \(C\). Namely it is proved:
Theorem. Let \({\tilde \phi}\), \(\phi\) be axiom A flows with \({\tilde \phi}^ a G\)-covering of \(\phi\), where \(G\) is a Galois group. Let \({\tilde \Omega}\) be a \({\tilde \phi}\) basic set which is \(G\)-invariant, and let \(\Omega ={\tilde \Omega}/G\). Define \[ \pi (t)=\text{Card}\{\tau | \quad e^{\lambda (\tau)h}\leq t\},\quad \pi_ C(t)=\text{Card}\{\tau | \quad e^{\lambda (\tau)h}\leq t,\quad \gamma ({\tilde \tau})\in C\} \] where \(h\) is the topological entropy of \(\phi\), \(\tau\) being of the least orbit period \(\lambda\) (\(\tau)\), and \(\gamma\) (\({\tilde \tau}\)) is the Frobenius element. Then \[ \pi_ C(t)\sim (| C| /| G|)\pi (t). \] If \({\tilde \phi}\), \(\phi\) are weak-mixing then \(\pi\) (t)\(\sim t/\log t\). An asymptotic formula is given if \({\tilde \phi}\), \(\phi\) are not weak-mixing.
An application to homology is given relatively to a question posed by J. Plante. Namely it is proved that the set of closed orbits with \(\Omega =M\) generates the group \(H_ 1(M,{\mathbb Z}).\)
In the last section the basic method is applied to compact group extensions. So for the frame bundle flows on a Riemannian manifold \(M_ 0\) with negative curvature one interprets the Frobenius class [\(\tau\) ] of a closed orbit \(\tau\) on \(M=TM_ 0\) as the conjugacy class in \(G\) of the holonomy associated with a closed geodesic.
