# Publications and Preprints:

Conditioned stochastic stability of equilibrium states on uniformly expanding repellers (2nd May 2024).

-with Bernat Bassols-Cornudella, Jeroen Lamb.

Abstract: We propose a notion of conditioned stochastic stability of invariant measures on repellers: we consider whether quasi-ergodic measures of absorbing Markov processes, generated by random perturbations of the deterministic dynamics and conditioned upon survival in a neighbourhood of a repeller, converge to an invariant measure in the zero-noise limit. Under suitable choices of the random perturbation, we find that equilibrium states on uniformly expanding repellers are conditioned stochastically stable. In the process, we establish a rigorous foundation for the existence of “natural measures”, which were proposed by Kantz and Grassberger in 1984 to aid the understanding of chaotic transients. DOI: arXiv:2405.01343v1.

Random Young towers and quenched decay of correlations for predominantly expanding multimodal circle maps (28th March 2023).

-with Giuseppe Tenaglia.

Abstract: In this paper, we study the random dynamical system $f_\omega^n$ generated by a family of maps $\{f_{\omega_0}: \mathbb S^1 \to \mathbb S^1\}_{\omega_0 \in [-\varepsilon,\varepsilon]},$ $f_{\omega_0}(x) = \alpha \xi (x+\omega_0) +a\ (\mathrm{mod }\ 1),$ where $\xi: \mathbb S^1 \to \mathbb R$ is a non-degenerated map, $a\in [0,1)$, and $\alpha,\varepsilon>0$. Fixing a constant $c\in (0,1)$, we show that for $\alpha$ sufficiently large and $\varepsilon > \alpha^{-1+c},$ the random dynamical system $f_\omega^n$ presents a random Young tower structure and quenched decay of correlations. DOI: arXiv:2303.16345

On the quasi-ergodicity of absorbing Markov chains with unbounded transition densities, including random logistic maps with escape (2nd September 2022).

-with Vincent P. H. Goverse, Jeroen S. W. Lamb, Martin Rasmussen.

Abstract: In this paper, we consider absorbing Markov chains $X_n$ admitting a quasi-stationary measure $\mu$ on $M$ where the transition kernel $\mathcal P$ admits an eigenfunction $0\leq \eta\in L^1(M,\mu)$. We find conditions on the transition densities of $\mathcal P$ with respect to $\mu$, which ensure that $\eta(x) \mu(d x)$ is a quasi-ergodic measure for $X_n$ and that the Yaglom limit converges to the quasi-stationary measure $\mu$-almost surely. We apply this result to the random logistic map $X_{n+1} = \omega_n X_n (1-X_n)$ absorbed at $\mathbb R \setminus [0,1],$ where $\omega_n$ is an i.i.d sequence of random variables uniformly distributed in $[a,b],$ for $1\leq a <4$ and $b>4.$ DOI: https://doi.org/10.1017/etds.2023.69.

The Lyapunov spectrum for conditioned random dynamical systems (8th April 2022).

-with Dennis Chemnitz, Hugo Chu, Maximilian Engel, Jeroen S. W. Lamb, Martin Rasmussen.

Abstract: We establish the existence of a full spectrum of Lyapunov exponents for memoryless random dynamical systems with absorption. To this end, we crucially embed the process conditioned to never being absorbed, the Q-process, into the framework of random dynamical systems, allowing us to study multiplicative ergodic properties. We show that the finite-time Lyapunov exponents converge in conditioned probability and apply our results to iterated function systems and stochastic differential equations. DOI: https://doi.org/10.48550/arXiv.2204.04129. To appear in Annales Henri Poincaré.

Existence and uniqueness of quasi-stationary and quasi-ergodic measures for absorbing Markov chains: a Banach lattice approach (27th November 2021, Stochastic Processes and their Applications).

-with Jeroen S. W. Lamb, Guilermo Olicón-Méndez, Martin Rasmussen.

Abstract: We establish existence and uniqueness of quasi-stationary and quasi-ergodic measures for almost surely absorbed discrete-time Markov chains under weak conditions. We obtain our results by exploiting Banach lattice properties of transition functions under natural regularity assumptions. DOI: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.spa.2024.104364.

A note on Vishik's normal form (12th November 2019, Journal of Differential Equations).

-with Ricardo M. Martins, Douglas D. Novaes.

Abstract: Vishik's Normal Form provides a local smooth conjugation with a linear vector field for smooth vector fields near contacts with a manifold. In the present study, we focus on the analytic case. Our main result ensures that for the analytic vector field and manifold, the conjugation with Vishik's normal form is also analytic. As an application, we investigate the analyticity of Poincaré Half Maps defined locally near contacts between the analytic vector field and manifold. DOI: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jde.2021.02.011.
