Birkhoff spectrum for Hénon-like maps at the first bifurcation

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We effect a multifractal analysis for a strongly dissipative Hénon-like map at the first bifurcation parameter at which the uniform hyperbolicity is destroyed by the formation of tangencies inside the limit set. We decompose the set of non-wandering points on the unstable manifold into level sets of Birkhoff averages of continuous functions, and derive a formula for the Hausdorff dimension of the level sets in terms of the entropy and unstable Lyapunov exponent of invariant probability measures.
