Su[Su] concerning the distribution of {na : 1 < n < q^) mod 1, where (pk/qk) are the successive convergents to an irrational a. T h e result is simplest in t h e case where the fractional p a r t of a is less t h a n 1/2, so we make t h a t assumption. 4, the successive minima of \\qa\\, q>l occur at q = qj,j > 0 and are given by \\qja\\ = \pj\. Su's result begins with the notion of dividing the open unit interval (0,1) into countably many half-open intervals, or bins Bj, j > 0, with Bj : = [\pj\, \pj-i\).

J, then 2J2n=i{na} ~ N = ^(l°S-^)> a result which also follows from the bounds on the discrepancy of the sequence. We close with some illustrations of these sums. There are strong hints of a fractal structure to these sums. r Wf^NiW' •>nm Fig. 2 Fig. 3 Partial sums of {ne} to 4000. Partial sums of {n\/2} to 34000. Continued 48 Fig. 4 Fractions Running total of parity of {fc\/2 - 1/2}. 1 Ergodic Maps Ergodic theory is based on the intuitive idea that a process which shuffles points around may well cause most points to have an orbit that visits every neighborhood of the same size equally often.
