I am interested in learning more about dynamical systems. Most of my background is algebraic, specifically in group theory/geometric group theory. I was wondering if anyone knew of a reference that gives a thorough treatment of dynamics from a group theoretic perspective?

    $\begingroup$ Do you mean when the dynamical system is given by a group action? Did you check for instance Zimmer's book? $\endgroup$ – Moishe Kohan Apr 23 at 1:35
  • $\begingroup$ Yes, that would be ideal! I just found Zimmer's book and it should be alright, though I would want another supplementary text if one exists (Zimmer's book seems a bit hard on it's own) $\endgroup$ – Brendan Mallery Apr 23 at 18:27

    $\begingroup$ I think they all will be hard ("Math is hard" as Barbie used to say). You can also try "Ratner's Theorem on Unipotent Flows" by Dave Witte Morris. $\endgroup$ – Moishe Kohan Apr 23 at 18:37
