Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Sarnak's Möbius disjointness conjecture asserts that for any zero entropy dynamical system, for every and every. We construct examples showing that this can go to zero arbitrarily slowly. In fact, our methods yield a more general result, where in lieu of, one can put any bounded sequence such that the Cesàro mean of the corresponding sequence of absolute values does not tend to zero. Moreover, in our construction, the choice of x depends on the sequence anbut does not.
