Abstract. Various kinematical quantities associated with the statistical properties of dynamical systems are examined: statistics of the motion, dynamical bases and Lyapunov exponents. Markov partitons for chaotic systems, without any attempt at describing ``optimal results''. The Ruelle principle is illustrated via its relation with the theory of gases. An example of an application predicts the results of an experiment along the lines of Evans, Cohen, Morriss' work on viscosity fluctuations. A sequence of mathematically oriented problems discusses the details of the main abstract ergodic theorems guiding to a proof of Oseledec's theorem for the Lyapunov exponents and products of random matrices.
