For any -expanding map of the circle we study the equilibrium states for the potential . We formulate a generalization of Pesin’s Entropy Formula that holds for all the Sinai–Ruelle–Bowen (SRB) measures if they exist, and for all the (necessarily existing) SRB-like measures. In the -generic case Pesin’s Entropy Formula holds for a unique SRB measure which is not absolutely continuous with respect to Lebesgue. The result also stands in the non-generic case for which no SRB measure exists.
