8.1 General setting
Consider a compact differentiable manifold G and a diffeomorphism φ : G → G .• Assume there is a metric on G .
Definition 8.1: A closed subset Λ ⊂ G is said to be hyperbolic if it is invariant under φ and moreoverfor every x ∈ Λ there is a decomposition of the tangent space TxG = E(s)x ⊕ E(u)x with dimE(s) > 0 anddimE(u) > 0, smooth in x and satisfying the following properties:
(i) The decomposition is invariant for the tangent map dφ(x) : TxG → Tφ(x)G , i.e.,
dφ(x)E(s)x ⊂ E(s)φ(x) , dφ(x)E(u)x ⊂ E(u)φ(x) .
(ii) E(s)x is a contracting subspace and E
(u)x is an expanding subspace; i.e., there are positive constants C
and µ such that for all k > 0 one has

Example 8.2: The doubling map of the circle and some generalizations.
• Strictly speaking, not a diffeomorphism (not invertible),but . . .
• exhibits the relevant characteristic of hyperbolic systems,i.e., the exponentially fast separation of orbits.
• The tangent space is one dimensional: only the expandingsubspace.
• More generally:◦ Pick an integer k ≥ 2◦ Define the map as x → f(x) mod 1. This is stillhyperbolic.
• May be further generalized to a non linear model (figure).◦ A real, continuous differentiable function f : [0, 1] →[0, k] with integer k ≥ 2; want f ′(x) > 1.
◦ Non differentiability at a finite set of points allowed.◦ Define the map as x → f(x) mod 1. This is stillhyperbolic.

8.1.2 The closure of a homoclinic orbit
Proposition 8.5: Let x be an homoclinic point on a transversal intersection of the stable and unstable manifolds emanatingfrom a hyperbolic fixed point x∗ of a differentiable map φ. Consider the closure of the orbit through x, namely
Λ = {x∗} ∪[
⋃
k∈Z
φkx]
.
Then Λ is an hyperbolic set.
• Main argument: at every point x of the homoclinic orbitthe expanding and contracting subspaces are tangent tothe unstable and stable manifold, respectively.

Ψ(x)

TxW(u)
TxW(s)
TΨ(x)W(s)
TΨ(x)W(u)
Proof.
• Λ is invariant and has only x∗ as accumulation point.• For every x ∈ Λ the tangent space is the sum of two independent subspaces
TxM = TxW(s) ⊕ TxW (u) .
◦ The subspaces are independent at x0 by the transversality hypothesis between W (s) and W (u).◦ Since W (s) and W (u) are invariant we have
dφ(TxW(s)) = Tφ(x)W
(s) , dφ(TxW(u)) = Tφ(x)W
(u) .
• Must prove: (i) the splitting is smooth; (ii) the subspaces Tφk(x)W (s) and Tφk(x)W (u) are contractingand expanding, respectively.
Hyperbolic systems – 234

• Smoothness: need to prove it only for the accumulationpoint x∗.
◦ Must prove: Tφk(x)W (s) → Tx∗W (s) = E(s) andTφk(x)W
(u) → Tx∗W (u) = E(u) for k → ±∞.
• For k → +∞: W (s) is tangent to E(s) at x∗ (by thestable manifold theorem)
◦ In view of φk(x) → x∗ conclude Tφk(x) → E(s).• For k → −∞ proceed by contradiction.
◦ Assume that Tψk(x)W (u) remains transversal toE(u); show that in such a case W (u) has a self intersection.

• Introduce local coordinates in the neighbourhood of x∗ taking E(s), E(u) as axes.◦ For k large enough denote by (x(s)k , x
(u)k ) the coordinates of φ
k(x).
◦ Since W (s) is tangent to E(s) at x∗, get x(u) = o(x(s)).◦ Since φk(x) tends exponentially to x∗ for k → +∞, get x(s)k  < Ce−σk for some positive C and σ.◦ Let z ∈ Tφk(x)W (u); write z = (x(s) + αkη, x(u) + η) with some η and with a positive sequence αk .
• Show that the claim Tφk(x)W (u) → E(u) is equivalent to the claim αk → 0.

◦ By contradiction: let αk → 0 be false. Then a subsequence satisfies αk > δ > 0.
◦ Take a neighbourhood U of x∗; let W (u)k be the connected component of W (u) ∩ U through φk(x).
◦ Any point ζ ∈ W (u)k can be represented as ζ =(
x(s)k + αkη + fk(η), x

)
with fk(η) = o(η).
◦ W (u)∗ emanating from x∗ is represented in the neighbourhood of the origin as
(
h(ξ), ξ)
with h(ξ) = o(ξ).
◦ Show that there exists k such that g(η) = 0 whereg(η) = x

◦ For k large enough will have x(s)k < δη/2. Yields
g(+δ) >δ
2η + o(η) > 0 , g(−δ) < −δ
2η + o(η) < 0 .
◦ By continuity g(η) has a zero in the interval [−δ, δ], which is a self intersection point of W (u).◦ Contradicts the known fact that W (u) can not have a selfintersection.

• Prove that TxW (s) is contracting.◦ Since φk(x) → x∗ for k → ±∞ it is enough to consider k ≥ K for K high enough, so that φk(x) ∈
U(x∗), a neighbourhood of x∗.
◦ Let η ∈ Tφk(x)W (s), and let η = η(s) + η(u) with η(s) ∈ E(s) and η(u) ∈ E(u).
◦ Clearly η(u) = αkη(s) with some sequence αk → 0 for k → ∞. Let, e.g., αk < 1/2.◦ In view of ‖η‖ > ‖η(s)‖ − ‖η(u)‖ > (1− αk)‖η(s)‖ get ‖η(s)‖ < 2‖η‖ and so also ‖η(u)‖ < 2αk‖η‖ .◦ Then

8.2 The shadowing lemma
Definition 8.6: A sequence {qk}k∈Z is said to be an ε–pseudoorbit in case one has∣
∣qk − φ(qk−1)∣
∣ < ε for all k ∈ Z .
Definition 8.7: An orbit {pk}k∈Z is said to be a δ–shadowing orbit for the ε–pseudoorbit {qk}k∈Z in caseone has
pk − qk < δ for all k ∈ Z .Proposition 8.8: (Anosov, Bowen) Let Λ ⊂ M be an hyperbolic set for the differentiable mapping φ. Ifδ > 0 is small enough then there is ε > 0 such that the following holds true: every ε–pseudoorbit in Λ has aδ–shadowing orbit in M .
8.2.1 Using the contraction principle
Let {qk}k∈Z be an ε–pseudooorbit.• Look for a sequence {xj}j∈Z such that {pj = qj + xj}j∈Z is an orbit and xj < δ.• Want the sequence {xj}j∈Z to satisfy
(8.2) qj+1 + xj+1 = φ(qj + xj) .
◦ Using the trivial identity φ(qj + xj) = φ(qj) + dφ(qj)xj +[
φ(qj + xj)− φ(qj)− dφ(qj)xj]
rewritethe equation (8.2) as
(8.3) xj+1 − dφ(qj)xj = fj(xj)where fj(xj) = φ(qj)− qj+1 +
[
φ(qj + xj)− φ(qj)− dφ(qj)xj]
.◦ The left member of (8.3) is a linear expression;◦ the right member is a small vector plus a quantity o(xj ).
Hyperbolic systems – 238

• Consider the linear space of bounded sequences x = {xj}j∈Z with the norm ‖x‖ = supj xj  .• The left side of equation xj+1 − dφ(qj)xj = fj(xj) takes the form (1− A)x, where A : X → X is the
linear operator defined as
(8.4) y = Ax ⇔ yj = dφ(qj−1)xj−1 .• Write the right side as y = F (x), where yj = fj(xj).• Get the equation in X
(8.5) (1− A)x = F (x) , F (x) = {fj(xj)}j∈Z .
Lemma 8.9: The operator 1− A is an isomorphism, and its inverse L = (1− A)−1 satisfies
‖L‖ ≤ C 1 + e−µ
1− e−µwith the constants C and µ as in (8.1).
Proof. Consider the equation
(8.6) (1− A)x = gwith known g ∈ X .
• The space X splits into disjoint invariant subspaces X(s) ={
X(s)j
}
j∈Zand X(u) =
{
X(u)j
}
j∈Z(by
definition of A through the differential of φ).• For every k ≥ 0 (see (8.4) in the definition of hyperbolic set)
(8.7)‖Akx(s)‖ ≤ Ce−µk‖x(s)‖ for all x(s) ∈ X(s) ,
‖A−kx(u)‖ ≤ Ce−µk‖x(u)‖ for all x(u) ∈ X(u) .• Project the equation (1− A)x = g on X(s), X(u); get
(8.8) (1− A)x(s) = g(s) , (1− A)x(u) = g(u)

• Back to the proof of the shadowing lemma:◦ rewrite the equation (8.5) as an equation for a fixed point in X :(8.9) x = G(x) = LF (x) .

Lemma 8.10: Let Bδ ⊂ X be a ball of radius δ around x = 0. If δ is small enough and if ε satisfies, e.g.,
(8.10) ε < Aµδ , Aµ =δ(1− e−µ)2C(1 + e−µ)
then G(x) is a contraction in Bδ.
Proof. Recall: G(x) = LF (x) by (8.9) and that F (x) = {fj(xj)}j∈Z by (8.5).
• Prove that G(Bδ) ⊂ Bδ for δ small enough.◦ φ is differentiable; hence

• Completion of the proof of the shadowing lemma◦ By lemma 8.10 the equation x = G(x) = LF (x) has a unique solution in Bδ ⊂ X .◦ Choose ε which satisfies ε < Aµδ as in (8.10), and the claim of the shadowing lemma follows.

8.3 Applications of the shadowing lemma
There are many . . .
8.3.1 Periodic orbits in the neighbourhood of a hyperbolic set
An interesting result.
Proposition 8.11: Let {qk}k∈Z be a periodic ε–pseudoorbit of period N , i.e., qk+N = qk for all k. Thenthe corresponding shadowing orbit is periodic of period N .
Proof.
• The shadowing orbit {pk}k∈Z satisfies qk − pk < δ for all k, and is unique.• By periodicity, qk+N = qk; hence
qk+N − pk+N  = qk − pk+N  < δ ,i.e., the translated orbit {pk+N}k∈Z shadows {qk}k∈Z .
• We conclude (by uniqueness) that that the orbit {pk}k∈Z coincides with the translated orbit {pk+N}k∈Z .• That is: pk = pk+N , hence the shadowing orbit is periodic.
Q.E.D.
• If the hyperbolic set Λ is a closed subset of the phase space G then the periodic orbit needs not be asubset of Λ
◦ E.g., if Λ is the closure of a homoclinic orbit then every point of the periodic orbit lies in aneighbourhood of the corresponding point of the pseudoorbit.

8.3.2 Dynamics in the neighbourhood of a homoclinic orbit
All the examples in this section are concerned with a set Λ which is the closure of a homoclinic orbit, doublyasymptotic to a fixed point x∗.
• Let Uε(x∗) be an ε–neighbourhood of x∗. Let x be a homoclinic intersection of the stable and unstablemanifolds emanating from x∗.
• There are positive j, k such that φtx ∈ Uε(x∗) for t ≤ −j and t ≥ k.
• Construct a n–slice 〈ωn〉 ⊂ Ω(x) of the homoclinic orbit:
◦ pick j, k such that φ−jx ∈ Uε and φkx ∈Uε ;
◦ set n = j + k + 1; let〈ωn〉 =
{
φ−jx, . . . , x, . . . , φkx}
be the sequence of n consecutive pointsof the orbit Ω(x) between φ−jx and φkx .
• Construct an ε–pseudoorbit in Λ.◦ The sequence (with an infinite sequenceof x∗ on both sides)
{. . . , x∗, x∗, x∗, 〈ωn〉, x∗, x∗, x∗, . . .}is an ε–pseudoorbit.
◦ The homoclinic orbit Ω(x) is the uniqueorbit that shadows the pseudoorbit.

Proposition 8.12: There are infinitely many distinct homoclinic orbits tending asymptotically to thehyperbolic fixed point x∗ for t → ±∞.Proof.
• Construct a finite sequence by concatenating any number o times the n–slice 〈ωn〉 with any finitenumber of repetitions of x∗.
◦ E.g., take the finite sequence{
〈ωn〉, x∗, x∗, 〈ωn〉, x∗, x∗, x∗, 〈ωn〉}
◦ There are infinitely many similar sequences.
• Construct an ε–pseudo orbit by complete the finite sequence above with an infinite sequence of x∗ onboth sides.
• There exists a unique shadowing orbit, which is clearly different from Ω(x) (it makes more than onecycle along the stable and unstable manifolds).
• Prove that the shadowing orbit is a homoclinic orbit.◦ For t > T large enough all points of the shadowing orbit lie on a δ–neighbourhood of x∗.◦ All these points must lie on the local stable manifold W (s) (if not, then the map sends them away).◦ Hence they must tend to x∗ for t → +∞.◦ Apply the same argument, mutatis mutandis, for t → −∞.
Q.E.D.

Proposition 8.13: The fixed point x∗ is a cluster point of periodic points.
• That is: in any neighbourhood of x∗ there are infinitely many periodic points.Proof. Pick δ > 0 arbitrary; take the corresponding ε.
• Let 〈ωn〉 be a n–slice (remark: n will depend on ε).
• Construct a periodic pseudoorbit.◦ construct a finite sequence by alternating a slice 〈ωn〉 with a finite sequence of x∗; e.g.,
{
〈ωn〉, x∗, x∗, x∗, 〈ωn〉, x∗}
◦ construct the periodic pseudoorbit by repeating ad infinitum the finite sequence above.
• The shadowing orbit is periodic, and has a point in a δ–neighbourhood of x∗Q.E.D.
• Produce further examples of periodic orbits.

Proposition 8.14: Let Q ={
q0, . . . , qn}
and Q′ ={
q′0, . . . , q′m
}
be periodic pseudoorbits, and let P ={
p0, . . . , pn}
and Q′ ={
q′0, . . . , q′m
}
be the corresponding periodic orbits. Then there is an orbit asymptoticto P for t → −∞ and to P ′ for t → +∞.
Hints for the proof.• Construct a pseudoorbit (semicolons separate different sections of the infinite sequence)
{
. . . ; q0, . . . , qn; q0, . . . , qn; x∗, . . . , x∗; q′0; . . . , q
′m; q

}
i.e., an infinite repetition of q0, . . . , qn on the left side and an infinite repetition of q′0; . . . , q
′m on the
right side, separated by an arbitrary number of x∗.
• Prove that the corresponding pseudoorbit has the wanted asymptotic properties.

8.3.3 Hyperbolic mappings
Proposition 8.15: Let M be a compact measurable manifold with a hyperbolic measure preserving mapping φ. Then there is a dense set of periodic orbits for φ with arbitrarily long period.
Proof. Must that in a δ–neighbourhood of every point x ∈ M one may find a periodic point of period longenough.
• Let ε0 correspond to δ/2 in the shadowing lemma; let ε = min(ε0, δ/2).
• By Poincaré’s recurrence theorem there is x ∈ Bε(x) such that φN (x) ∈ Bε for some N .
• Construct the periodic pseudoorbit {qk}k∈Z by settingq0 = x, q1 = φ(x), . . . , qN−1 = φ
