Disintegration of invariant measures for hyperbolic skew products

  • Oliver Butterley
  • Ian Melbourne


We study hyperbolic skew products and the disintegration of the SRB measure into measures supported on local stable manifolds. Such a disintegration gives a method for passing from an observable v on the skew product to an observable \(\overline v \) on the system quotiented along stable manifolds. Under mild assumptions on the system we prove that the disintegration preserves the smoothness of v, first in the case where v is Hölder and second in the case where v is \({\mathcal{C}^1}\) .
