Abstract

We study a one-parameter family of interval maps $\{T_\alpha\}_{\alpha\in[1,\beta]}$, with $\beta$ the golden mean, defined on $[-1,1]$ by $T_\alpha(x)=\beta^{1+|t|}x-t\beta\alpha$ where $t\in\{-1,0,1\}$. For each $T_\alpha,\ \alpha>1$, we construct its unique, absolutely continuous invariant measure and show that on an open, dense subset of parameters $\alpha$, the corresponding density is a step
