Abstract : The strange attractors plotted by computers and seen in physical experiments do not necessarily have an open basin of attraction. In view of this we study a new definition of attractors based on ideas of Conley. We argue that the attractors observed in the presence of small random perturbations correspond to this new definition.

Abstract : We consider classical systems of particles inv dimensions. For a very large class of pair potentials (superstable lower regular potentials) it is shown that the correlation functions have bounds of the form ?(x1,...,xn)??n. Using these and further inequalities one can extend various results obtained by Dobrushin and Minlos [3] for the case of potentials which are non-integrably divergent at the origin. In particular it is shown that the pressure is a continuous function of the density. Infinite system equilibrium states are also defined and studied by analogy with the work of Dobrushin [2a] and of Lanford and Ruelle [11] for lattice gases.

SYSTEMES DYNAMIQUES
Abstract : Let E be the compact set of states on a C?-algebra U with identity. We discuss the representations of a state ? as barycenter of a probability measure ? on E. Examples of such representations are the central decomposition and the ergodic decomposition. They are associated with an Abelian von Neumann algebra B in the commutant ?(U)? of the image of U in the representation canonically associated with ?. This situation is studied in general and a number of applications are discussed.

Mean entropy of States in classical statistical mechanics

Abstract : The equilibrium states for an infinite system of classical mechanics may be represented by states over Abelian C* algebras. We consider here continuous and lattice systems and define a mean entropy for their states. The properties of this mean entropy are investigated : linearity, upper semi-continuity, integral representations. In the lattice case, it is found that our mean entropy coincides with the KOLMOGOROV-SINAI invariant of ergodic theory.

Abstract : In the theory of circle maps with golden ratio rotation number formulated by Feigenbaum, Kadanoff, and Shenker [FKS], and by Ostlund, Rand, Sethna, and Siggia [ORSS], a central role is played by fixed points of a certain composition operator in map space. We define a common setting for the problem of proving the existence of these fixed points and of those occurring in the theory of maps of the interval. We give a proof of the existence of the fixed points for a wide range of the parameters on which they depend.

Astract : Letz?f?(z) be a complex holomorphic function depending holomorphically on the complex parameter ?. If, for ?=0, a critical point off0 falls after a finite number of steps onto an unstable fixed point off0, then, in the parameter space, near 0, an infinity of more and more accurate copies of the Mandelbrot set appears. We compute their scaling properties.

Absract : Analyticity properties of the Feigenbaum function [a solution ofg(x)=???1g(g(?x)) withg(0)=1,g?(0)=0,g?(0)<0] are investigated by studying its inverse function which turns out to be Herglotz or anti-Herglotz on all its sheets. It is found thatg is analytic and uniform in a domain with a natural boundary.

Abstract : It is shown that every system of time-ordered products for a local field theory determines a related system of Schwinger functions possessing an extended form of Osterwalder-Schrader positivity and that the converse is true provided certain growth conditions are satisfied. This is applied to the ? 3 4 theory and it is shown that the time-ordered functions andS-matrix elements admit the standard perturbation series as asymptotic expansions.
