MiS Preprint Repository

We have decided to discontinue the publication of preprints on our preprint server as of 1 March 2024. The publication culture within mathematics has changed so much due to the rise of repositories such as ArXiV ( that we are encouraging all institute members to make their preprints available there. An institute's repository in its previous form is, therefore, unnecessary. The preprints published to date will remain available here, but we will not add any new preprints here.

Hölder Shadowing on Finite Intervals

Sergey Tikhomirov


For any $\theta, \omega > 1/2$ we prove that, if any $d$-pseudotrajectory of length $\sim 1/d^{\omega}$ of a diffeomorphism $f\in C^2$ can be $d^{\theta}$-shadowed by an exact trajectory, then $f$ is structurally stable. Previously it was conjectured by Hammel, Yorke and Grebogi that for $\theta = \omega = 1/2$ this property holds for a wide class of non-uniformly hyperbolic diffeomorphisms. In the proof we introduce the notion of sublinear growth property for inhomogenious linear equations and prove that it implies exponential dichotomy.
