Summary and Info
In the present book we develop the most important and basic results of modern ergodic theory thin the more comprehensive framework of functional analysis. Methods of functional analysis often make it possible to formulate more general results, which elucidate structural similarities of problems arising in different branches of ergodic theory. The 13 Lectures together with the Dicossions (and the Introductory Appendices if necessary) should provide a compact introduction into modern ergodic theory for the newcomer. rhe book will be, however, much easier to comprehend for students with a solid background in functional analysis.
