Various versions of 

Various versions of conjugacy between topology and measure theory'' have been studied in  the case of a mixing shift of finite type $S$ with a specified invariant Markov measure $\mu$. At one extreme, a conjugacy $\phi: (S,\mu ) \to (S,\mu')$ is only required to satisfy $\phi_* (\mu ) = \mu'$ with $\phi S = S'\phi$ on a set of full $\mu$ measure.   At the other extreme, $\phi$ is also required to be a homeomorphism. Intermediate requirements on $\phi$ were studied by Keane and Smorodinsky, Parry, Schmidt, Marcus and Tuncel, Gomez ... For a brief review of this with references, and the still-open Good finitary conjecture'', see the discussion of Problem 9 in  (also available as `OPSD'' at http://www.math.umd.edu/~mboyle/open/ ).

In another direction, one can consider homeomorphisms $S$ and $S'$ with respect to  all invariant Borel probabilities (not just one), and ask for a topological or Borel conjugacy between the complements of sets of measure zero for all nonatomic invariant Borel probabilities. Hochman  proved striking universality results in this direction (for application of this work to $C^+$ diffeomorphisms, see ).

Finally, following Shelah and Weiss, one can  consider $S$ and $S'$ as Borel systems, neglecting wandering sets; see  for dramatic progress on this long stalled study.
