Is there a transitive/ergodic diffeomophism on $\mathbb S^2, \mathbb D^2$?
See ,  for a 2004 survey.
I am a bit surprised by this question because I think the answer was known at that time. Following the work of Plykin, we can start from an hyperbolic toral automorphism and map the torus to the sphere using a Jacobi elliptic function. The result is a pseudo-Anosov diffeomorphism of the sphere that inherits the properties of the toral automorphism with respect to a measure absolutely continuous with respect to Lebesgue. Then we can project the sphere on the plane stereographically and send the plane in a disk. Actually the procedure goes back to Schroeder (1871) when starting from multiplication by 2 on a 2-dimensional torus, and gives a transitive rational transformation of the Riemann sphere.
Or do I miss something?
