Existence uniqueness and ratio decomposition for Gibbs states via duality

By A. A. Pinto and D. A. (David A.) Rand


We give an elementary proof of existence and uniqueness of Gibbs states for Hölder weight systems on subshifts of finite type. This uses a notion of duality for such subshifts. The approach of Paterson [2] is used to construct a measure with a prescribed Jacobian and the duality is used to produce an invariant measure from this
