We start by considering the Heisenberg nilflow renormalized by a partially hyperbolic automorphism of the nilmanifold. Through this renormalization, we show that the spectrum of the transfer operator of the partially hyperbolic map gives information about the (parabolic) nilflow - in particular, information about deviation of ergodic averages and regularity of the cohomological equation. Then we discuss the spectral information of more general partially hyperbolic systems and their relationship to a larger class of parabolic flows. (Joint work with Oliver Butterley.)
