Genericity of zero Lyapunov exponents

  • JAIRO BOCHI (a1)

We show that, for any compact surface, there is a residual (dense G_{\delta}) set of C^{1} area-preserving diffeomorphisms which either are Anosov or have zero Lyapunov exponents a.e. This result was announced by R. Mañé, but no proof was available. We also show that for any fixed ergodic dynamical system over a compact space, there is a residual set of continuous SL(2,\mathbb{R})-cocycles which either are uniformly hyperbolic or have zero exponents a.e.
