We study continuous countably (strictly) monotone maps defined on a tame graph, i.e. a special Peano continuum for which the set containing branch points and end points has countable closure. In our investigation we confine ourselves to the countable Markov case. We show a necessary and sufficient condition under which a locally eventually onto, countably Markov map
of a tame graph
is conjugate to a map
of constant slope. In particular, we show that in the case of a Markov map
that corresponds to a recurrent transition matrix, the condition is satisfied for a constant slope
is the topological entropy of
. Moreover, we show that in our class the topological entropy
is achievable through horseshoes of the map
We establish the analogue for maps on trees of the result established by Bobok (Studia Math.152 (2002), 249–261 and Studia Math.166 (2005), 11–27) for interval maps, that a continuous self-map for which all but countably many points have at least $m$ preimages (and none have less than two) has topological entropy bounded below by $\log m$.
We investigate the relation between preimage multiplicity and topological entropy for continuous maps. An argument originated by Misiurewicz and Przytycki shows that if every regular value of a C1 map has at least m preimages then the topological entropy of the map is at least log m. For every integer, there exist continuous maps of the circle with entropy 0 for which every point has at least m preimages. We show that if in addition there is a positive uniform lower bound on the diameter of all pointwise preimage sets, then the entropy is at least log m.
We study invariant measures for a continuous function which maps a real interval into itself. We show that the ratio of the measures of the two subintervals into which it is divided by a fixed point is constrained by the the set of periods of periodic points. As a consequence of this we give a new forcing relation between periodic points.
