Abstract:
In this paper, we give a formula of the Hausdorff dimension of the boundary of the immediate basin of infinity of McMullen maps $f_p(z)=z^Q+p/z^Q$, where $Q\geq 3$ and $p$ is small. This gives a lower bound of the Hausdorff dimension of the Julia sets of McMullen maps in the special cases.

Abstract:
We study bifurcations of invariant graphs in skew product dynamical systems driven by hyperbolic surface maps T like Anosov surface diffeomorphisms or baker maps and with one-dimensional concave fibre maps under multiplicative forcing when the forcing is scaled by a parameter r=e^{-t}. For a range of parameters two invariant graphs (a trivial and a non-trivial one) coexist, and we use thermodynamic formalism to characterize the parameter dependence of the Hausdorff and packing dimension of the set of points where both graphs coincide. As a corollary we characterize the parameter dependence of the dimension of the global attractor A_t: Hausdorff and packing dimension have a common value dim(A_t), and there is a critical parameter t_c determined by the SRB measure of T^{-1} such that dim(A_t)=3 for t < t_c and t --> dim(A_t) is strictly decreasing for t_c < t < t_{max}.

Abstract:
The notions of shyness and prevalence generalize the property of being zero and full Haar measure to arbitrary (not necessarily locally compact) Polish groups. The main goal of the paper is to answer the following question: What can we say about the Hausdorff and packing dimension of the fibers of prevalent continuous maps? Let $K$ be an uncountable compact metric space. We prove that the prevalent $f\in C(K,\mathbb{R}^d)$ has many fibers with almost maximal Hausdorff dimension. This generalizes a theorem of Dougherty and yields that the prevalent $f\in C(K,\mathbb{R}^d)$ has graph of maximal Hausdorff dimension, generalizing a result of Bayart and Heurteaux. We obtain similar results for the packing dimension. We show that for the prevalent $f\in C([0,1]^m,\mathbb{R}^d)$ the set of $y\in f([0,1]^m)$ for which $\dim_H f^{-1}(y)=m$ contains a dense open set having full measure with respect to the occupation measure $\lambda^m \circ f^{-1}$, where $\dim_H$ and $\lambda^m$ denote the Hausdorff dimension and the $m$-dimensional Lebesgue measure, respectively. We also prove an analogous result when $[0,1]^m$ is replaced by any self-similar set satisfying the open set condition. We cannot replace the occupation measure with Lebesgue measure in the above statement: We show that the functions $f\in C[0,1]$ for which positively many level sets are singletons form a non-shy set in $C[0,1]$. In order to do so, we generalize a theorem of Antunovi\'c, Burdzy, Peres and Ruscher. As a complementary result we prove that the functions $f\in C[0,1]$ for which $\dim_H f^{-1}(y)=1$ for all $y\in (\min f,\max f)$ form a non-shy set in $C[0,1]$. We also prove sharper results in which large Hausdorff dimension is replaced by positive measure with respect to generalized Hausdorff measures, which answers a problem of Fraser and Hyde.

Abstract:
We prove that a compact metric space (or more generally an analytic subset of a complete separable metric space) of Hausdorff dimension bigger than $k$ can be always mapped onto a $k$-dimensional cube by a Lipschitz map. We also show that this does not hold for arbitrary separable metric spaces. As an application we essentially answer a question of Urba\'nski by showing that the transfinite Hausdorff dimension (introduced by him) of an analytic subset $A$ of a complete separable metric space is the integer part of $\dim_H A$ if $\dim_H A$ is finite but not an integer, $\dim_H A$ or $\dim_H A-1$ if $\dim_H A$ is an integer and at least $\omega_0$ if $\dim_H A=\infty$.

Abstract:
Let $f:\bar\bold C\to\bar\bold C$ be a rational map on the Riemann sphere , such that for every $f$-critical point $c\in J$ which forward trajectory does not contain any other critical point, $|(f^n)'(f(c))|$ grows exponentially fast (Collet--Eckmann condition), there are no parabolic periodic points, and else such that Julia set is not the whole sphere. Then smooth (Riemann) measure of the Julia set is 0. For $f$ satisfying additionally Masato Tsujii's condition that the average distance of $f^n(c)$ from the set of critical points is not too small, we prove that Hausdorff dimension of Julia set is less than 2. This is the case for $f(z)=z^2+c$ with $c$ real, $0\in J$, for a positive line measure set of parameters $c$.

Abstract:
We present a construction of hedgehogs for holomorphic maps with an indifferent fixed point. We construct, for a family of commuting non-linearisable maps, a common hedgehog of Hausdorff dimension 1, the minimum possible.

Abstract:
The Hausdorff dimension of a conformal repeller or conformal hyperbolic set is well understood. For non-conformal maps, the Hausdorff dimension is only known in some special cases. Ban, Cao and Hu defined the concept of an average conformal repeller which generalises conformal, quasi-conformal and weakly conformal repellers, and they found an equation for the Hausdorff dimension for an average conformal repeller. In this paper we generalise this concept to average conformal hyperbolic sets, and obtain a similar equation for the Hausdorff dimension.

Abstract:
We study non-invertible piecewise hyperbolic maps in the plane. The Hausdorff dimension of the attractor is calculated in terms of the Lyapunov exponents, provided that the map satisfies a transversality condition. Explicit examples of maps for which this condition holds are given.

Abstract:
In this paper, we study the Hausdorff dimension of a certain class of laminations, called graph matchbox manifolds. These laminations are obtained as suspensions of pseudogroup actions on the space of pointed trees, and can be regarded as generalizations of suspensions of shift spaces. It is well-known that full shifts have positive Hausdorff dimension. We show that the Hausdorff dimension of the space of pointed trees is infinite. One of the applications of this result is to the problem of embeddings of laminations into differentiable foliations of smooth manifolds. To admit such an embedding, a lamination must satisfy at least the following two conditions: first, it must admit a metric and a foliated atlas, such that the generators of the holonomy pseudogroup, associated to the atlas, are bi-Lipschitz maps relative to the metric. Second, it must admit an embedding into a manifold, which is a bi-Lipschitz map. The space of graph matchbox manifolds is an example of a lamination where the first condition is satisfied, and the second one is not satisfied, with Hausdorff dimension of the space of pointed trees being the obstruction to the existence of a bi-Lipschitz embedding.

Abstract:
Under appropriate assumptions on the dimension of the ambient manifold and the regularity of the Hamiltonian, we show that the Mather quotient is small in term of Hausdorff dimension. Then, we present applications in dynamics.
