Meromorphic zeta functions for analytic flows

  • David Fried


We extend to hyperbolic flows in all dimensions Rugh's results on the meromorphic continuation of dynamical zeta functions. In particular we show that the Ruelle zeta function of a negatively curved real analytic manifold extends to a meromorphic function on the complex plane.
