We review some analytic, measure-theoretic and topological techniques for studying ergodicity and entropy of discrete dynamical systems, with a focus on Boole-type transformations and their generalizations. In particular, we present a new proof of the ergodicity of the 1-dimensional Boole map and prove that a certain 2-dimensional generalization is also ergodic. Moreover, we compute and demonstrate the equivalence of metric and topological entropies of the 1-dimensional Boole map employing “compactified”representations and well-known formulas. Several examples are included to illustrate the results. We also introduce new multidimensional Boole-type transformations invariant with respect to higher dimensional Lebesgue measures and investigate their ergodicity and metric and topological entropies.
