  • Mixing properties for infinite local complexity tiling substitutions

    View Abstract

    Discrete substitution and finite local complexity substitution tiling dynamical systems can be weakly mixing but not strongly mixing. We discuss examples of infinite local complexity substitution tilings (in d=1 and d=2) that are mixing of all orders and have Lebesgue spectrum. We compare to results on other types of dynamical systems including interval exchanges and rank 1.

  • Local weak∗-Convergence, algebraic actions, and a max-min principle

    View Abstract

    This talk will be concerned with algebraic actions, which are actions of a countable, discrete, group G on a compact group X. When G is sofic, a natural question is when the topological entropy and measure entropy of these actions agree. I will show that there is a complete lattice of "generalized subgroups" of X and a max-min principle in this complete lattice which essentially gives a complete answer to when this equality occurs.
