## Abstract

We are going to prove a Lipschitz property of Jacobi matrices built by orthogonalizing polynomials with respect to measures in the orbit of classical Perron-Frobenius-Ruelle operators associated to hyperbolic polynomial dynamics. This Lipschitz estimate will not depend on the dimension of the Jacobi matrix. It is obtained using some sufficient conditions for two-weight boundedness of the Hilbert transform. It has been proved in [F. Peherstorfer, A. Volberg, P. Yuditskii, Limit periodic Jacobi matrices with prescribed p-adic hull and a singular continuous spectrum, Math. Res. Lett. 13 (2-3) (2006) 215-230] for all polynomials with sufficiently big hyperbolicity and in the most symmetric case t = 0 that the Lipschitz estimate becomes exponentially better when the dimension of the Jacobi matrix grows. This allows us to get for such polynomials the solution of a problem of Bellissard, in other words, to prove the limit periodicity of the limit Jacobi matrix. We suggest a scheme how to approach Bellissard's problem for all hyperbolic dynamics by uniting the methods of the present paper and those of [F. Peherstorfer, A. Volberg, P. Yuditskii, Limit periodic Jacobi matrices with prescribed p-adic hull and a singular continuous spectrum, Math. Res. Lett. 13 (2-3) (2006) 215-230]. On the other hand, the nearness of Jacobi matrices under consideration in operator norm implies a certain nearness of their canonical spectral measures. One can notice that this last claim just gives us the classical commutative Perron-Frobenius-Ruelle theorem (it is concerned exactly with the nearness of such measures). In particular, in many situations we can see that the classical Perron-Frobenius-Ruelle theorem is a corollary of a certain non-commutative observation concerning the quantitative nearness of pertinent Jacobi matrices in operator norm.
