Chaotic homeomorphisms of RN, lifted from torus homeomorphisms

By Steven Alpern and V. S. Prasad


We establish the existence of self-homeomorphisms of Rn, n ≥ 2, which are chaotic in the sense of Devaney, preserve volume and are spatially periodic. Moreover, we show that in the space of volume-preserving homeomorphisms of the n-torus with mean rotation zero, those with chaotic lifts to Rn are dense, with respect to the uniform topology. An application is given for fixed points of 2-dimensional torus homeomorphisms (Conley–Zehnder–Franks Theorem). 1991 Mathematics Subject Classification 54H20
