The ergodic theory of chaotic maps plays an important role in science and technology, such as computational molecular dynamics and wireless communications. In this talk we look at chaos from the statistical point of view, and we introduce Frobenius-Perron operators. The classic Ulam’s method and its modern extension will be presented too.
