George Boole, the daddy of Boolean algebra, released An research of the legislation of idea, a seminal paintings on algebraic good judgment, in 1854. during this research of the elemental legislation of human reasoning, Boole makes use of the symbolic language of arithmetic to check the character of the human brain.

1u) γ W (2) ∂S ∩ ∂γS ⊂ ΛS . Generally, we say S is admissible if S is ε-admissible for some ε > 0. A proper rectangle R is (ε-) admissible if we can write R = ΓS, for some (ε-) admissible proper D-rectangle S. If S is an ε-admissible proper D-rectangle, we let S(ε, s) (resp S(ε, u)) be the set of points x ∈ S for which (1s) (resp (1u)) is satisfied. We similarly define R(ε, s), R(ε, u) for admissible proper rectangles. Obviously, R(ε, s) ∩ R(ε, u) ⊃ R◦ . 6. It may be shown that the definitions of R(ε, s), R(ε, u) are independent of choice of proper D-rectangle or slice D.

Let Λ be transversally hyperbolic. There exist an open Γ-invariant neighborhood U of Λ in M and constants β, ρ > 0 such that whenever x ∈ Λ, y ∈ U and there exists a sequence (τn ) ⊂ Γ such that for all n ∈ Z we have (a) dΓ (τn , τn+1 ) < ρ, (b) d(f n (x), τn f n (y)) < β, then y ∈ Γx. Proof. Our condition on y implies that the f -orbit of y stays close to Λ. 6], we may choose an open Γ-invariant neighborhood U of Λ such that if Λ = ∩n∈Z f n (U¯ ), then TΛ has a partially hyperbolic splitting. 6 that Λ is transversally hyperbolic.

The map π : Σ→Λ defined by −k (Rxk ) π(x) = ∩∞ k=−∞ f is well-defined. Furthermore, (a) π is H¨older continuous and surjective. (b) π is 1:1 on a residual subset of Σ. (c) #π −1 (x) ≤ n2 for all x ∈ Λ. (d) f π = πσ. (e) π is Γ-equivariant. (f) Every isotropy group in Λ occurs as the isotropy group of a point in Σ. Proof. Everything except (e,f) is proved in [6, 7]. Statement (e) is immediate from the fact that Γ acts on R. It remains to prove (f). Suppose H ∈ I(Λ). Since R is a Γ-invariant Markov partition, it follows that RH is a Markov partition for f : ΛH →ΛH .
