Artin-Mazur's zeta function
In mathematics , the Artin-Mazur zeta function named after Michael Artin and Barry Mazur is an aid for studying iterated functions in dynamic systems . It is sometimes referred to as the topological zeta function .
Artin and Mazur introduced this zeta function in 1965. This function was then further explored and made popular by Stephen Smale .
The Artin-Mazur zeta function is defined as a formal power series :
Here referred to the set of fixed points of th iteration of the function , and the cardinality of the set of checkpoints. Only finite cardinalities are allowed here.
The Artin-Mazur zeta function is a topological invariant, that is, it is invariant under topological conjugations . It connects local properties of the function with global properties of the manifold generated by the discrete trajectories (orbits) .
Extensive convergence studies have been carried out by William Parry and Mark Pollicott .
A further development of the Artin-Mazurian zeta function in the theory of dynamic systems was carried out by David Ruelle , Viviane Baladi and others to the Ruelle zeta function and dynamic zeta function .
