The study of the general structure of dynamical systems, begun in the previous sections, could continue and constitutes one of the directions in which ergodic theory can be developed. We shall, however, look in a somewhat different direction dedicating attention to a few concrete problems that do not belong to the general theory. The more concrete studies involve analytic work of “classical” type and are more directly related to the applications.
