June 2012 Weighted thermodynamic formalism on subshifts and applications
Julien Barral, De-Jun Feng
Asian J. Math. 16(2): 319-352 (June 2012).


We examine the interplay between the thermodynamic formalism and the multifractal formalism on the so-called self-affine symbolic spaces, under the specification property assumption. We investigate the properties of a weighted variational principle to derive a new result concerning the approximation of any invariant probability measure $\mu$ by sequences of weighted equilibrium states whose weighted entropies converge to the weighted entropy of $\mu$. This is a key property in the estimation of the Hausdorff dimension of sets of generic points, and then in the multifractal analysis of non homogeneous Birkhoff averages.
