In the paper, we prove convergence of moments of all orders for Axiom A diffeomorphisms and flows. The same results hold for non-uniformly hyperbolic diffeomorphisms and flows modelled by Young towers with superpolynomial tails. For polynomial tails, we prove convergence of moments up to a certain order, and give examples where moments diverge when this order is exceeded. Non-uniformly hyperbolic systems covered by our result include Hénon-like attractors, Lorenz attractors, semidispersing billiards, finite horizon planar periodic Lorentz gases, and Pomeau–Manneville intermittency maps.
