From discrete- to continuous-time ergodic theorems

  • V. BERGELSON (a1), A. LEIBMAN (a1) and C. G. MOREIRA (a2)


We introduce methods that allow us to derive continuous-time versions of various discrete-time ergodic theorems. We then illustrate these methods by giving simple proofs and refinements of some known results as well as establishing new results of interest.
