In a given dynamic system it is possible to have points to which the orbit returns infinitely many times in its neighborhood. Closing lemma seeks to establish when perturbations of the initial system have a periodic orbit and thus the orbit "closes", hence the name of the lemma. Throughout this project we will study several formulations of Closing lemma, where the type of domain or the differentiability of the functions used are varied. For some of these formulations it is known that the response to the existence of the closed orbit is positive, for other formulations it is known that the answer is negative and there are still other formulations where there is no definitive answer. The student will focus on obtaining results related to versions of Closing lemma (where it is possible and where it is impossible to establish?) for piecewise smooth vector fields. Moreover, in the study of such recurrences we will establish conjugations between shifts (of finite and infinite symbols) and first return maps, in this way, we will obtain ergodic results regarding piecewise smooth vector fields.
