We study the action of isometries on metric spaces. In particular, we consider the recurrent set of the bilateral shift operator on the Banach space L (ℤ), and prove that the set of periodic points is not dense in the recurrent set. Then we apply this result to investigating the dynamics of Teichmüller modular groups acting on infinite dimensional Teichmüller spaces as well as composition operators acting on Hardy spaces.
