Dynamics of real projective transformations
Keywords:topological entropy, zeta function, projective transformation
AbstractThe dynamics of a projective transformation on a real projective space are studied in this paper. The two main aspects of these transformations that are studied here are the topological entropy and the zeta function. Topological entropy is an inherent property of a dynamical system whereas the zeta function is a useful tool for the study of periodic points. We find the zeta function for a general projective transformation but entropy only for certain transformations on the real projective line.
