Abstract. We study Anosov diffeomorphisms on manifolds in which some `holes' are cut. The points that are mapped into those holes disappear and never return. The holes studied here are rectangles of a Markov partition. Such maps generalize Smale's horseshoes and certain open billiards. The set of nonwandering points of a map of this kind is a Cantor-like set called a repeller. We construct invariant and conditionally invariant measures on the sets of nonwandering points. Then we establish ergodic, statistical, and fractal properties of those measures.
