Lalley’s theorem on periodic orbits of hyperbolic flows. (English) Zbl 0915.58074
Summary: We give an asymptotic estimate for the number of periodic orbits of an Anosov flow which are subject to multidimensional constraints. We also study their spatial distribution. For instance, we describe the distribution of periodic orbits with respect to homology classes, for both homologically full Anosov flows and suspensions of Anosov transformations.
