The cohomological equation for Roth type interval exchange maps
Abstract
We exhibit an explicit full measure class of minimal interval exchange maps T for which the cohomological equation $\Psi \Psi\circ T=\Phi$ has a bounded solution $\Psi$ provided that the datum $\Phi$ belongs to a finite codimension subspace of the space of functions having on each interval a derivative of bounded variation. The class of interval exchange maps is characterized in terms of a diophantine condition of ``Roth type'' imposed to an acceleration of the RauzyVeechZorich continued fraction expansion associated to T.
