Let f: \(M\to M\) be a mapping in the negative Schwarzian case: here M is a circle or an interval. One studies measurable dynamics of this kind of mappings: behavior of almost all (Lebesgue measure) trajectories of this mapping. The important role is attached to the notion of metric attractor of J. Milnor [Commun. Math. Phys. 99, 177-195 (1985; Zbl 0595.58028)]. In this paper Milnor has formulated the problem of decomposition of the global attractor of the mapping f into a finite union of indecomposable attractors \(A_ k\). In the present work one proves ergodicity of the restriction of f on domains of attraction of these attractors. It is therefore the answer on the questions of Milnor.
