## Stable ergodicity and Anosov flows

**Authors: Keith Burns,

**Abstract:**

We prove that the time-1 map of a C^2, volume-preserving Anosov flow
on a compact 3-manifold, is stably ergodic if and only if the flow is not a (constant time) suspension of an Anosov diffeomorphism. In higher dimensions,
we prove that the time one map is stably ergodic under the assumption that
the strong stable and strong unstable foliations are not integrable.
