If we have topological conjugacy between two continuous maps, T : X → X and
: X0 → X0
, then counts of closed orbits and periodic points are preserved. However,
if we only have topological semi-conjugacy between T and T
, then anything is
possible, and there is, in general, no relationship between closed orbits (or periodic
points) of T and T
. However, if we let a finite group G act on X, where the action
of G commutes with T and where we let X0 = G\X be the quotient of the action,
then it is indeed possible to say a bit more about the relationship between the count
of closed orbits of (X, T) and its quotient system (X0
, T0
). In this thesis, we will
describe the behaviour of closed orbits in quotient systems, and we will show that
there exists a wide but restricted range of what growth rates can be achieved for
these orbits. Moreover, we will examine the analytic properties of the dynamical zeta
function in quotient systems.
