Genericity of zero Lyapunov exponents. (English) Zbl 1023.37006
The author proves a result announced but probably not proved by R. Mañé: In the space of the \(C^1\) area-preserving diffeomorphisms on a compact surface the set of diffeomorphisms that are either Anosov or have zero Lyapunov exponents a.e. is residual. He also shows that for any fixed ergodic dynamical system on a compact metric space there is a residual set of continuous \(\text{SL}(2,\mathbb{R})\)-cocycles which either are uniformly hyperbolic or have zero exponents a.e.
