Robust minimality of iterated function systems with two generators

  • ALE JAN HOMBURG (a1) (a2) and MEYSAM NASSIRI (a3)


We prove that every compact manifold without boundary admits a pair of diffeomorphisms that generates ${C}^{1} $ robustly minimal dynamics. We apply the results to the construction of blenders and robustly transitive skew product diffeomorphisms.
