Abstract

We develop a systematic approach to the problem of finding the perturbative expansion for the topological pressure for an analytic expanding dynamics (/, M) on a Riemannian manifold M. The method is based on the spectral analysis of the transfer operator C. We show that in typical cases, when / depends real-analytically on a set of perturbing parameters ,", the related operators C~ form an analytic family. This gives rise to the rigorous construction of the power series expansion for the pressure via the analytic perturbation theory for eigenvalues, [Kato]. Consequently, the pressure and related dynamical indices, such as dimension spectra, Lyapunov exponents, escape rates and Renyi entropies inherit the real-analyticity in ~ from (I,M).
