## Abstract

Oseledets' celebrated Multiplicative Ergodic Theorem (MET) [V.I. Oseledec, A multiplicative ergodic theorem. Characteristic Ljapunov, exponents of dynamical systems, Trudy Moskov. Mat. Obšč. 19 (1968), 179-210.] is concerned with the exponential growth rates of vectors under the action of a linear cocycle on ℝ^{d}. When the linear actions are invertible, the MET guarantees an almost-everywhere pointwise splitting of ℝ^{d} into subspaces of distinct exponential growth rates (called Lyapunov exponents). When the linear actions are non-invertible, Oseledets' MET only yields the existence of a filtration of subspaces, the elements of which contain all vectors that grow no faster than exponential rates given by the Lyapunov exponents. The authors recently demonstrated [G. Froyland, S. Lloyd, and A. Quas, Coherent structures and exceptional spectrum for Perron-Frobenius cocycles, Ergodic Theory and Dynam. Systems 30 (2010), 729-756.] that a splitting over R^{d} is guaranteed without the invertibility assumption on the linear actions. Motivated by applications of the MET to cocycles of (non-invertible) transfer operators arising from random dynamical systems, we demonstrate the existence of an Oseledets splitting for cocycles of quasi-compact non-invertible linear operators on Banach spaces.
