Until recently, measurable dynamics has been regarded as a highly theoretical mathematical topic with few obvious links to areas of applied mathematics. The advent of high-speed computers, rapidly-developing algorithms, and new numerical methods has, however, allowed for a tremendous amount of progress and sophistication in efforts to represent the notion of a transfer operator discretely but to high resolution. This book connects many concepts in dynamical systems with mathematical tools from areas such as graph theory and ergodic theory. The authors introduce practical tools for applications related to measurable dynamical systems, coherent structures and transport problems. The new and fast-developing computational tools discussed throughout the book allow for detailed analysis of real-world problems that are beyond the reach of traditional methods. This book is intended for researchers and students at the advanced undergraduate level and above in applied dynamical systems, computational ergodic theory, geosciences, and fluid dynamics.
