DESCRIPTION:Title: Ost
rowski numeration and repetitions in words\nby Narad Rampersad (Univer
sity of Winnipeg) as part of One World Numeration seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nO
ne of the classical results in combinatorics on words is Dejean's Theorem\
, which specifies the smallest exponent of repetitions that are avoidable
on a given alphabet. One can ask if it is possible to determine this quan
tity (called the *repetition threshold*) for certain families of infinite
words. For example\, it is known that the repetition threshold for Sturmi
an words is 2+phi\, and this value is reached by the Fibonacci word. Rece
ntly\, this problem has been studied for *balanced words* (which generaliz
e Sturmian words) and *rich words*. The infinite words constructed to res
olve this problem can be defined in terms of the Ostrowski-numeration syst
em for certain continued-fraction expansions. They can be viewed as *Ostr
owski-automatic* sequences\, where we generalize the notion of *k-automati
c sequence* from the base-k numeration system to the Ostrowski numeration
system.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: On
singular substitution Z-actions\nby Boris Solomyak (University of Bar-
Ilan) as part of One World Numeration seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nWe consider p
rimitive aperiodic substitutions on $d$ letters and the spectral propertie
s of associated dynamical systems. In an earlier work we introduced a spec
tral cocycle\, related to a kind of matrix Riesz product\, which extends t
he (transpose) substitution matrix to the $d$-dimensional torus. The asymp
totic properties of this cocycle provide local information on the (fractal
) dimension of spectral measures. In the talk I will discuss a sufficient
condition for the singularity of the spectrum in terms of the top Lyapunov
exponent of this cocycle. \n\nThis is a joint work with A. Bufetov.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Erg
odic behavior of transformations associated with alternate base expansions
\nby Célia Cisternino (University of Liège) as part of One World Num
eration seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nWe consider a p-tuple of real numbers great
er than 1\, $\\boldsymbol{\\beta} = (\\beta_1\,\\dots\,\\beta_p)$\, called
an alternate base\, to represent real numbers. Since these representation
s generalize the 𝛽-representation introduced by Rényi in 1958\, a lot
of questions arise. In this talk\, we will study the transformation genera
ting the alternate base expansions (greedy representations). First\, we wi
ll compare the $\\boldsymbol{\\beta}$-expansion and the $(\\beta_1*\\cdots
*\\beta_p)$-expansion over a particular digit set and study the cases when
the equality holds. Next\, we will talk about the existence of a measure
equivalent to Lebesgue\, invariant for the transformation corresponding to
the alternate base and also about the ergodicity of this transformation.

\nA well known theorem due to Koksma states that for Lebesgue almost every
$x>1$ the sequence $(x^n)$ is uniformly distributed modulo one. In this t
alk I will discuss an analogue of this statement that holds for fractal me
asures. As a corollary of this result we show that if $C$ is equal to the
middle third Cantor set and $t\\geq 1$\, then almost every $x\\in C+t$ is
such that $(x^n)$ is uniformly distributed modulo one. Here almost every i
s with respect to the natural measure on $C+t$.\n

he Lagrange and Markov spectra are closed subsets of the positive real num
bers defined in terms of diophantine approximations. Their topological str
uctures are quite involved: they begin with an explicit discrete subset ac
cumulating at $3$\, they end with a half-infinite ray of the form $[4.52\\
cdots\,\\infty)$\, and the portions between $3$ and $4.52\\cdots$ contain
complicated Cantor sets. In this talk\, we describe polynomial time algori
thms to approximate (in Hausdorff topology) these spectra.\n

that has been repeated in proofs going back more than 50 years. Corrected

e concept of a normal number to numeration systems with infinite digit set
s (for example\, various continued fraction expansions\, the Lüroth serie

ltiscale Substitution Tilings\nby Yotam Smilansky (Rutgers University)
as part of One World Numeration seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nMultiscale substit

rated by multiscale substitution rules. Unlike the standard setup of subst
itution tilings\, which is a basic object of study within the aperiodic or
der community and includes examples such as the Penrose and the pinwheel t
ilings\, multiple distinct scaling constants are allowed\, and the definin
g process of inflation and subdivision is a continuous one. Under a certai
n irrationality assumption on the scaling constants\, this construction gi
ves rise to a new class of tilings\, tiling spaces and tiling dynamical sy
stem\, which are intrinsically different from those that arise in the stan
dard setup. In the talk I will describe these new objects and discuss vari

real numbers on fractal sets were pioneered by H. Steinhaus who proved in
1917 that $C+C=[0\,2]$ and $C−C=[−1\,1]$\, where $C$ is the middle-thi

DESCRIPTION:Title: A
Rauzy fractal unbounded in all directions of the plane\nby Mélodie An
drieu (Aix-Marseille University) as part of One World Numeration seminar\n
\n\nAbstract\nUntil 2001 it was believed that\, as for Sturmian words\, th
e imbalance of Arnoux-Rauzy words was bounded - or at least finite. Cassai
gne\, Ferenczi and Zamboni disproved this conjecture by constructing an Ar
noux-Rauzy word with infinite imbalance\, i.e. a word whose broken line de
viates regularly and further and further from its average direction. Today
\, we hardly know anything about the geometrical and topological propertie
s of these unbalanced Rauzy fractals. The Oseledets theorem suggests that
these fractals are contained in a strip of the plane: indeed\, if the Lyap
unov exponents of the matricial product associated with the word exist\, o
ne of these exponents at least is nonpositive since their sum equals zero.
This talk aims at disproving this belief.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Th
e carry propagation of the successor function\nby Jacques Sakarovitch
(Irif\, CNRS\, and Télécom Paris) as part of One World Numeration semina
r\n\n\nAbstract\nGiven any numeration system\, the carry propagation at an
integer $N$ is the number of digits that change between the representatio
n of $N$ and $N+1$. The carry propagation of the numeration system as a wh
ole is the average carry propagations at the first $N$ integers\, as $N$ t
ends to infinity\, if this limit exists. \n\nIn the case of the usual base
$p$ numeration system\, it can be shown that the limit indeed exists and
is equal to $p/(p-1)$. We recover a similar value for those numeration sys
tems we consider and for which the limit exists. \n\nThe problem is less t
he computation of the carry propagation than the proof of its existence. W
e address it for various kinds of numeration systems: abstract numeration
systems\, rational base numeration systems\, greedy numeration systems and
beta-numeration. This problem is tackled with three different types of te
chniques: combinatorial\, algebraic\, and ergodic\, each of them being rel
evant for different kinds of numeration systems. \n\nThis work has been pu
blished in Advances in Applied Mathematics 120 (2020). In this talk\, we s
hall focus on the algebraic and ergodic methods. \n\nJoint work with V. Be

DESCRIPTION:Title: Li
mit theorems on counting large continued fraction digits\nby Tanja Isa
belle Schindler (Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa) as part of One World Nu
meration seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nWe establish a central limit theorem for c
ounting large continued fraction digits $(a_n)$\, that is\, we count occur
rences $\\{a_n>b_n\\}$\, where $(b_n)$ is a sequence of positive integers.
Our result improves a similar result by Philipp\, which additionally assu
mes that bn tends to infinity. Moreover\, we also show this kind of centra
l limit theorem for counting the number of occurrences entries such that t
he continued fraction entry lies between $d_n$ and $d_n(1+1/c_n)$ for give
n sequences $(c_n)$ and $(d_n)$. For such intervals we also give a refinem
ent of the famous Borel–Bernstein theorem regarding the event that the n
th continued fraction digit lying infinitely often in this interval. As a
side result\, we explicitly determine the first $\\phi$-mixing coefficient
for the Gauss system - a result we actually need to improve Philipp's the
orem. This is joint work with Marc Kesseböhmer.\n

nteger $k$\, we are interested in the asymptotic density $\\delta(k\,t)$ o
f integers $t$ such that $s_2(n+t)-s_2(n)=k$.\nIn this talk\, we consider
the following two questions. \n\n(1) Do we have \\[ c_t=\\delta(0\,t)+\\
delta(1\,t)+\\cdots>1/2? \\]\nThis is a conjecture due to T. W. Cusick (2
011). \n\n(2) What does the probability distribution defined by $k\\mapsto
\\delta(k\,t)$ look like?\n\nWe prove that indeed $c_t>1/2$ if the binary
expansion of $t$ contains at least $M$ blocks of contiguous ones\, where
$M$ is effective.\nOur second theorem states that $\\delta(j\,t)$ usually
behaves like a normal distribution\, which extends a result by Emme and Hu

continued fraction algorithm come from the Euclidean algorithm. We can als
o describe this algorithm using a dynamical system of $[0\,1)$\, where the
transformation that takes $x$ to the fractional part of $1/x$ is said to
generate the continued fraction expansion of $x$. From there\, we ask two
questions: What happens to the continued fraction expansion when we change
the domain to something other than $[0\,1)$? What happens to the dynamica
l system when we impose restrictions on the continued fraction expansion\,
such as finding the nearest odd integer instead of the floor? This talk w
ill focus on the case where we first restrict to odd integers\, then start
shifting the domain $[\\alpha-2\, \\alpha)$.\n \nThis talk is based on jo

\nby Tom Kempton (University of Manchester) as part of One World Numeratio

$A=\\{-1\,0\,1\\}$\, the spectrum of $\\beta$ is the set \n$$\\Sigma(\\bet
a) :=\\bigg\\{\\sum_{i=1}^n a_i\\beta^i : n\\in\\mathbb N\, a_i\\in A\\big

$\\beta$ dynamically using substitutions or cut and project schemes\, and
this allows one to see lots of local structure in the spectrum. There are
higher dimensional analogues for other algebraic integers.\n\nIn this talk
we will define a random walk on the spectrum of $\\beta$ and show how\, w
ith appropriate renormalisation\, this leads to an infinite stationary mea
sure on the spectrum. This measure has local structure analagous to that o
f the spectrum itself. Furthermore\, this measure has deep links with the
Bernoulli convolution\, and in particular new criteria for the absolute co
ntinuity of Bernoulli convolutions can be stated in terms of the ergodic p
roperties of these measures.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Do
uble rotations and their ergodic properties\nby Alexandra Skripchenko
(Higher School of Economics) as part of One World Numeration seminar\n\n\n
Abstract\nDouble rotations are the simplest subclass of interval translati
on mappings. A double rotation is of finite type if its attractor is an in
terval and of infinite type if it is a Cantor set. It is easy to see that
the restriction of a double rotation of finite type to its attractor is si
mply a rotation. It is known due to Suzuki - Ito - Aihara and Bruin - Clar
k that double rotations of infinite type are defined by a subset of zero m
easure in the parameter set. We introduce a new renormalization procedure
on double rotations\, which is reminiscent of the classical Rauzy inductio
n. Using this renormalization we prove that the set of parameters which in
duce infinite type double rotations has Hausdorff dimension strictly small
er than 3. Moreover\, we construct a natural invariant measure supported o
n these parameters and show that\, with respect to this measure\, almost a
ll double rotations are uniquely ergodic. In my talk I plan to outline thi
s proof that is based on the recent result by Ch. Fougeron for simplicial
systems. I also hope to discuss briefly some challenging open questions an
d further research plans related to double rotations. \n\nThe talk is base
d on a joint work with Mauro Artigiani\, Charles Fougeron and Pascal Huber

DESCRIPTION:Title: (L
ogarithmic) Densities for Automatic Sequences along Primes and Squares
\nby Michael Drmota (TU Wien) as part of One World Numeration seminar\n\n\
nAbstract\nIt is well known that the every letter $\\alpha$ of an automati
c sequence $a(n)$ has\na logarithmic density -- and it can be decided when
this logarithmic density is actually a density.\nFor example\, the letter
s $0$ and $1$ of the Thue-Morse sequences $t(n)$ have both frequences $1/2
$.\n[The Thue-Morse sequence is the binary sum-of-digits functions modulo
2.]\n\nThe purpose of this talk is to present a corresponding result for s
ubsequences of general\nautomatic sequences along primes and squares. This
is a far reaching generalization of two breakthrough\nresults of Mauduit
and Rivat from 2009 and 2010\, where they solved two conjectures by Gelfon
d\non the densities of $0$ and $1$ of $t(p_n)$ and $t(n^2)$ (where $p_n$ d
enotes the sequence of primes).\n\nMore technically\, one has to develop a
method to transfer density results for primitive automatic\nsequences to
logarithmic-density results for general automatic sequences. Then as an ap
plication\none can deduce that the logarithmic densities of any automatic
sequence along squares\n$(n^2)_{n\\geq 0}$ and primes $(p_n)_{n\\geq 1}$ e
xist and are computable.\nFurthermore\, if densities exist then they are (
usually) rational.\n

ract\nRandom substitutions and their associated subshifts provide a model
for structures that exhibit both long range order and positive topological
entropy. In this talk we discuss the entropy of a large class of ergodic
measures\, known as frequency measures\, that arise naturally from random
substitutions. We introduce a new measure of complexity\, namely measure t
heoretic inflation word entropy\, and discuss its relationship to measure
theoretic entropy. This new measure of complexity provides a framework for
the systematic study of measure theoretic entropy for random substitution
subshifts. \n\nAs an application of our results\, we obtain closed form f
ormulas for the entropy of frequency measures for a wide range of random s
ubstitution subshifts and show that in many cases there exists a frequency
measure of maximal entropy. Further\, for a class of random substitution
subshifts\, we show that this measure is the unique measure of maximal ent

tract\nIt is commonly expected that expansions of numbers in multiplicativ

. However\, it seems extraordinarily difficult to confirm this naive heuri
stic principle in some way or another. In the late 1960s\, Furstenberg sug
gested a series of conjectures\, which became famous and aim to capture th
is heuristic. The work I will discuss in this talk is motivated by one of
these conjectures. Despite recent remarkable progress by Shmerkin and Wu\,
it remains totally out of reach of the current methods. While Furstenberg
’s conjectures take place in a dynamical setting\, I will use instead th
e language of automata theory to formulate some related problems that form
alize and express in a different way the same general heuristic. I will ex
plain how the latter can be solved thanks to some recent advances in Mahle
r’s method\; a method in transcendental number theory initiated by Mahle
r at the end of the 1920s. This a joint work with Colin Faverjon.\n

real number by rationals\, many mathematicians have suggested generalisat
ions to study Diophantine approximations of vectors in higher dimensions.
Examples include Poincaré's algorithm introduced at the end of the 19th c
entury or those of Brun and Selmer in the middle of the 20th century. Sinc
e the beginning of the 90's to the present day\, there has been many works
studying the convergence and dynamics of these multidimensional continued
fraction algorithms. In particular\, Schweiger and Broise have shown that
the approximation sequence built using Selmer and Brun algorithms converg
e to the right vector with an extra ergodic property. On the other hand\,
Nogueira demonstrated that the algorithm proposed by Poincaré almost neve
r converges. \n\nStarting from the classical case of Farey's algorithm\, w
hich is an "additive" version of Gauss's algorithm\, I will present a comb
inatorial point of view on these algorithms which allows to us to use a ra
ndom walk approach. In this model\, taking a random vector for the Lebesgu
e measure will correspond to following a random walk with memory in a labe
lled graph called symplicial system. The laws of probability for this rand
om walk are elementary and we can thus develop probabilistic techniques to
study their generic dynamical behaviour. This will lead us to describe a
purely graph theoretic criterion to check the convergence of a continued f
raction algorithm.\n

near repetition in polytopal cut and project sets\nby Henna Koivusalo
(University of Vienna) as part of One World Numeration seminar\n\n\nAbstra
ct\nCut and project sets are aperiodic point patterns obtained by projecti
ng an irrational slice of the integer lattice to a subspace. One way of cl
assifying aperiodic sets is to study repetition of finite patterns\, where
sets with linear pattern repetition can be considered as the most ordered
aperiodic sets. \nRepetitivity of a cut and project set depends on the sl
ope and shape of the irrational slice. The cross-section of the slice is k
nown as the window. In an earlier work it was shown that for cut and proje
ct sets with a cube window\, linear repetitivity holds if and only if the
following two conditions are satisfied: (i) the set has minimal complexity
and (ii) the irrational slope satisfies a certain Diophantine condition.
In a new joint work with Jamie Walton\, we give a generalisation of this r
esult for other polytopal windows\, under mild geometric conditions. A key
step in the proof is a decomposition of the cut and project scheme\, whic
h allows us to make sense of condition (ii) for general polytopal windows.

scriptive complexity in numeration systems\nby Steve Jackson (Universi

Descriptive set theory gives a means of calibrating the complexity of sets
\, and we focus on some sets occurring in numerations systems. Also\, the
descriptive complexity of the difference of two sets gives a notion of the
logical independence of the sets. A classic result of Ki and Linton says
that the set of normal numbers for a given base is a $\\boldsymbol{\\Pi}^0
_3$ complete set. In work with Airey\, Kwietniak\, and Mance we extend to
other numerations systems such as continued fractions\, $\\beta$-expansion
s\, and GLS expansions. In work with Mance and Vandehey we show that the n
umbers which are continued fraction normal but not base $b$ normal is comp
lete at the expected level of $D_2(\\boldsymbol{\\Pi}^0_3)$. An immediate
corollary is that this set is uncountable\, a result (due to Vandehey) onl
y known previously assuming the generalized Riemann hypothesis.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: A
strong version of Cobham's theorem\nby Philipp Hieronymi (Universität
Bonn) as part of One World Numeration seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nLet $k\,l>1$
be two multiplicatively independent integers. A subset $X$ of $\\mathbb{N
}^n$ is $k$-recognizable if the set of $k$-ary representations of $X$ is r
ecognized by some finite automaton. Cobham’s famous theorem states that
a subset of the natural numbers is both $k$-recognizable and $l$-recogniza
ble if and only if it is Presburger-definable (or equivalently: semilinear
). We show the following strengthening. Let $X$ be $k$-recognizable\, let
$Y$ be $l$-recognizable such that both $X$ and $Y$ are not Presburger-defi
nable. Then the first-order logical theory of $(\\mathbb{N}\,+\,X\,Y)$ is
undecidable. This is in contrast to a well-known theorem of Büchi that th
e first-order logical theory of $(\\mathbb{N}\,+\,X)$ is decidable. Our wo
rk strengthens and depends on earlier work of Villemaire and Bès.\n\nThe
essence of Cobham's theorem is that recognizability depends strongly on th
e choice of the base $k$. Our results strengthens this: two non-Presburger
definable sets that are recognizable in multiplicatively independent base
s\, are not only distinct\, but together computationally intractable over
Presburger arithmetic.\n\nThis is joint work with Christian Schulz.\n

Lucía Rossi (Montanuniversität Leoben) as part of One World Numeration
seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nIn this talk we will introduce the notion of ration
al self-affine tiles\, which are fractal-like sets that arise as the solut
ion of a set equation associated to a digit system that consists of a base
\, given by an expanding rational matrix\, and a digit set\, given by vect
ors. They can be interpreted as the set of “fractional parts” of this
digit system\, and the challenge of this theory is that these sets do not
live in a Euclidean space\, but on more general spaces defined in terms of
Laurent series. Steiner and Thuswaldner defined rational self-affine tile
s for the case where the base is a rational matrix with irreducible charac
teristic polynomial. We present some tiling results that generalize the on
es obtained by Lagarias and Wang: we consider arbitrary expanding rational
matrices as bases\, and simultaneously allow the digit sets to be nonstan
dard (meaning they are not a complete set of residues modulo the base). We
also state some topological properties of rational self-affine tiles and
give a criterion to guarantee positive measure in terms of the digit set.\

tending the theory of symbolic substitutions to compact alphabets\nby
Jamie Walton (University of Glasgow) as part of One World Numeration semin
ar\n\n\nAbstract\nIn this work\, joint with Neil Mañibo and Dan Rust\, we
consider an extension of the theory of symbolic substitutions to infinite
alphabets\, by requiring the alphabet to carry a compact\, Hausdorff topo
logy for which the substitution is continuous. Such substitutions have bee
n considered before\, in particular by Durand\, Ormes and Petite for zero-
dimensional alphabets\, and Queffélec in the constant length case. We fin
d a simple condition which ensures that an associated substitution operato
r is quasi-compact\, which we conjecture to always be satisfied for primit
ive substitutions on countable alphabets. In the primitive case this impli
es the existence of a unique natural tile length function and\, for a reco
gnisable substitution\, that the associated shift space is uniquely ergodi
c. The main tools come from the theory of positive operators on Banach spa
ces. Very few prerequisites will be assumed\, and the theory will be demon
strated via examples.\n

ract\nLet $\\beta \\in (1\,2)$ and $I_\\beta := [0\,\\frac{1}{\\beta-1}]$.
Almost every real number of $I_\\beta$ has infinitely many expansions in
base $\\beta$\, and the random $\\beta$-transformation generates all these
expansions. We present the construction of a "geometrico-symbolic" extens
ion of the random $\\beta$-transformation\, providing a new proof of the e

is known to follow from a condition introduced by Boshernitzan that estab

a similar frequency. Building on works of Berthé–Steiner–Thuswaldner

act\nLet $A$ be a matrix with rational entries and no eigenvalue in absolu
te value smaller than 1. Let $\\mathbb{Z}^d[A]$ be the minimal $A$-invaria
nt $\\mathbb{Z}$-module\, generated by integer vectors and the matrix $A$.
In 2018\, we have shown that one can find a finite set $D$ of vectors\, s
uch that each element of $\\mathbb{Z}^d[A]$ has a finite radix expansion i
n base $A$ using only the digits from $D$\, i.e. $\\mathbb{Z}^d[A]=D[A]$.
This is called 'the finiteness property' of a digit system. In the present
talk I will review more recent developments in mathematical machinery\, t
hat enable us to build finite digit systems over lattices using reasonably
small digit sets\, and even to do some practical computations with them o
n a computer. Tools that we use are the generalized rotation bases with di
git sets that have 'good' convex properties\, the semi-direct ('twisted')
sums of such rotational digit systems\, and the special\, 'restricted' ver
sion of the remainder division that preserves the lattice $\\mathbb{Z}^d$
and can be extended to $\\mathbb{Z}^d[A]$. This is joint work with J. Thus

n\nAbstract\nLochs' theorem and its generalizations are conversion theorem
s that relate the number of digits determined in one expansion of a real n

In its original version\, Lochs' theorem related decimal expansions with
continued fraction expansions. Such conversion results can also be stated
for sequences of interval partitions under suitable assumptions\, with res
ults holding almost everywhere\, or in measure\, involving the entropy. Th
is is the viewpoint we develop here. In order to deal with sequences of pa
rtitions beyond positive entropy\, this paper introduces the notion of log
-balanced sequences of partitions\, together with their weight functions.
These are sequences of interval partitions such that the logarithms of the
measures of their intervals at each depth are roughly the same. We then s
tate Lochs-type theorems which work even in the case of zero entropy\, in
particular for several important log-balanced sequences of partitions of a
number-theoretic nature. \n\nThis is joint work with Valérie Berthé (IR

this talk we will discuss spectral properties of finitary S-adic systems.
Our departure point will be a theorem by B. Host which characterizes eige

a new phenomenon: the bases should be expressible as rational functions of

able condition (i.e.\, our previous sufficient condition for being a sofic
system)\, we prove that the normalization function is computable by a fin

automaton. An important tool in our study is the spectrum of numeration sy

Classical sequences of numbers often lead to interesting q-analogues. The
most popular among them are certainly the q-integers and the q-binomial co
efficients which both appear in various areas of mathematics and physics.
With Valentin Ovsienko we recently suggested a notion of q-rationals based
on combinatorial properties and continued fraction expansions. The defini
tion of q-rationals naturally extends the one of q-integers and leads to a
ratio of polynomials with positive integer coefficients. I will explain t
he construction and give the main properties. In particular I will briefly
mention connections with the combinatorics of posets\, cluster algebras\,
Jones polynomials\, homological algebra. Finally I will also present furt
her developments of the theory\, leading to the notion of q-irrationals an

DESCRIPTION:Title: La
rge and Small Chaos Models\nby James A. Yorke (University of Maryland)
as part of One World Numeration seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nTo set the scene\,
I will discuss one large model\, a whole-Earth model for predicting the w
eather\, and how to initialize such a model and what aspects of chaos are
essential. Then I will discuss a couple related “very simple” maps tha
t tell us a great deal about very complex models. The results on simple mo
dels are new. I will discuss the logistic map mx(1-x). Its dynamics can ma
ke us rethink climate models. Also\, we have created a piecewise linear ma
p on a 3D cube that is unstable in 2 dimensions in some places and unstabl
e in 1 in others. It has a dense set of periodic points that are 1 D unsta
ble and another dense set of periodic points that are all 2 D unstable. I
will also discuss a new project whose tentative title is “ Can the flap
of butterfly's wings shift a tornado out of Texas -- without chaos?\n

rt of One World Numeration seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nSince the introduction o
f Lüroth expansions by Lüroth in his paper from 1883 many results have a
ppeared on their approximation properties. In 1990 Kalpazidou\, Knopfmache
r and Knopfmacher introduced alternating Lüroth expansions and studied th
eir properties. A comparison between the two and other comparable number s
ystems was then given by Barrionuevo\, Burton\, Dajani and Kraaikamp in 19
96. In this talk we introduce a family of random dynamical systems that pr
oduce many Lüroth type expansions at once. Topics that we consider are pe
riodic expansions\, universal expansions\, speed of convergence and approx
imation coefficients. This talk is based on joint work with Marta Maggioni

ct\nGiven the $N$-continued fraction of a number $x$\, we construct $N$-co
ntinued fraction sequences in the same spirit as Sturmian sequences can be
constructed from regular continued fractions. These sequences are infinit
e words over a two letter alphabet obtained as the limit of a directive se
quence of certain substitutions (they are S-adic sequences). By viewing th
em as a generalisation of Sturmian sequences it is natural to study balanc
edness. We will see that the sequences we construct are not 1-balanced but
C-balanced for $C=N^2$. Furthermore\, we construct a dual sequence which
is related to the natural extension of the $N$-continued fraction algorith
m. This talk is joint work with Lucía Rossi and Jörg Thuswaldner.\n

rld Numeration seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nWe discuss combinatorial and dynamic
al descriptions of S-adic systems generated by sequences of constant-lengt
h morphisms between alphabets of bounded size. For this purpose\, we intro
duce the notion of quasi-recognisability\, a strictly weaker version of re
cognisability but which is indeed enough to reconstruct several classical
arguments of the theory of constant-length substitutions in this more gene
ral context. Furthermore\, we identify a large family of directive sequenc
es\, which we call "torsion-free"\, for which quasi-recognisability is obt
ained naturally\, and can be improved to actual recognisability with relat
ive ease.\n\nUsing these notions we give S-adic analogues of the notions o
f column number and height for substitutions\, including dynamical and com
binatorial interpretations of each\, and give a general characterisation o
f the maximal equicontinuous factor of the identified family of S-adic shi
fts\, showing as a consequence that in this context all continuous eigenva
lues must be rational. As well\, we employ the tools developed for a first
approach to the measurable case.\n\nThis is a joint work with Neil Mañib

h Diophantine properties. In this respect\, they play a crucial role in ma
ny problems well beyond Number Theory and Fractal Geometry (e.g.\, in sign
al processing\, in mathematical physics and in convex geometry). \n\nAfter
outlining some of the latest developments in this very active area of res
earch\, we will take an interest in the Littlewood conjecture (c. 1930) an
d in its variants which all admit a natural formulation in terms of proper
ties satisfied by badly approximable vectors. We will then show how ideas
emerging from the mathematical theory of quasicrystals\, from numeration s
ystems and from the theory of aperiodic tilings have recently been used to
refute the so-called t-adic Littlewood conjecture. \n\nAll necessary conc
epts will be defined in the talk. Joint with Fred Lunnon (Maynooth) and Er

atching for parameterised symmetric golden maps\nby Slade Sanderson (U

In 2020\, Dajani and Kalle investigated invariant measures and frequencies
of digits of signed binary expansions arising from a parameterised family
of piecewise linear interval maps of constant slope 2. Central to their
study was a property called ‘matching\,’ where the orbits of the left
and right limits of discontinuity points agree after some finite number of
steps. We obtain analogous results for a parameterised family of ‘symm
etric golden maps’ of constant slope $\\beta$\, with $\\beta$ the golden
mean. Matching is again central to our methods\, though the dynamics of
the symmetric golden maps are more delicate than the binary case. We char
acterize the matching phenomenon in our setting\, present explicit invaria
nt measures and frequencies of digits of signed $\\beta$-expansions\, and-
--time permitting---show further implications for a family of piecewise li
near maps which arise as jump transformations of the symmetric golden maps

Abstract\nGiven $\\beta \\in (1\,2]$\, let $T$ be the $\\beta$-transformat
ion on the unit circle $[0\,1)$. For $t \\in [0\,1)$ let $K(t)$ be the sur
vivor set consisting of all $x$ whose orbit under $T$ never hits the open
interval $(0\,t)$. Kalle et al. [ETDS\, 2020] proved that the Hausdorff di
mension function $\\dim K(t)$ is a non-increasing Devil's staircase in $t$
. So there exists a critical value such that $\\dim K(t)$ is vanishing whe
n $t$ is passing through this critical value. In this paper we will descri
be this critical value and analyze its interesting properties. Our strateg

iophantine Approximation for systems of linear forms - some comments on in
homogeneity\, monotonicity\, and primitivity\nby Demi Allen (Universit

ntine Approximation is a branch of Number Theory in which the central them
e is understanding how well real numbers can be approximated by rationals.
In the most classical setting\, a $\\psi$-well-approximable number is one
which can be approximated by rationals to a given degree of accuracy spec
ified by an approximating function $\\psi$. Khintchine's Theorem provides
a beautiful characterisation of the Lebesgue measure of the set of $\\psi$
-well-approximable numbers and is one of the cornerstone results of Diopha
ntine Approximation. In this talk I will discuss the generalisation of Khi
ntchine's Theorem to the setting of approximation for systems of linear fo

terated function systems of linear expanding and contracting maps on the u
nit interval\nby Ale Jan Homburg (University of Amsterdam\, VU Univers
ity Amsterdam) as part of One World Numeration seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nWe a
nalyze the two-point motions of iterated function systems on the unit inte
rval generated by expanding and contracting affine maps\, where the expans
ion and contraction rates are determined by a pair $(M\,N)$ of integers.\n
\nThis dynamics depends on the Lyapunov exponent.\n\nFor a negative Lyapun
ov exponent we establish synchronization\, meaning convergence of orbits w
ith different initial points. For a vanishing Lyapunov exponent we establi
sh intermittency\, where orbits are close for a set of iterates of full de
nsity\, but are intermittently apart. For a positive Lyapunov exponent we
show the existence of an absolutely continuous stationary measure for the
two-point dynamics and discuss its consequences.\n\nFor nonnegative Lyapun
ov exponent and pairs $(M\,N)$ that are multiplicatively dependent integer
s\, we provide explicit expressions for absolutely continuous stationary m
easures of the two-point dynamics. These stationary measures are infinite
$\\sigma$-finite measures in the case of zero Lyapunov exponent.\n\nThis i

erendipitous decompositions of higher-dimensional continued fractions\
nby Anton Lukyanenko (George Mason University) as part of One World Numera
tion seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nComplex continued fractions (CFs) represent a
complex number using a descending fraction with Gaussian integer coefficie
nts. The associated dynamical system is exact (Nakada 1981) with a piecewi
se-analytic invariant measure (Hensley 2006). Certain higher-dimensional C
Fs\, including CFs over quaternions\, octonions\, as well as the non-commu
tative Heisenberg group can be understood in a unified way using the Iwasa
wa CF framework (L-Vandehey 2022). Under some natural and robust assumptio
ns\, ergodicity of the associated systems can then be derived from a conne
ction to hyperbolic geodesic flow\, but stronger mixing results and inform
ation about the invariant measure remain elusive. Here\, we study Iwasawa
CFs under a more delicate serendipity assumption that yields the finite ra
nge condition\, allowing us to extend the Nakada-Hensley results to certai
n Iwasawa CFs over the quaternions\, octonions\, and in $\\mathbb{R}^3$.\n

ubshifts of very low complexity\nby Ronnie Pavlov (University of Denve

ity function $p(n)$ of a subshift $X$ measures the number of $n$-letter wo
rds appearing in sequences in $X$\, and $X$ is said to have linear complex
ity if $p(n)/n$ is bounded. It's been known since work of Ferenczi that su
bshifts X with linear word complexity function (i.e. $\\limsup p(n)/n$ fin

with Darren Creutz\, where we show that if $\\limsup p(n)/n < 4/3$\, then
the subshift $X$ must in fact have measurably discrete spectrum\, i.e. it
is isomorphic to a compact abelian group rotation. Our proof uses a subst

he sum of binary digits of a nonnegative integer $n$. In 2012 Cusick asked
whether for every nonnegative integer $t$ the set of $n$ satisfying $s(n+
t) \\geq s(n)$ has natural density strictly greater than $1/2$. So far it
is known that the answer is affirmative for almost all $t$ (in the sense o
f density) and $s(n+t) - s(n)$ has approximately Gaussian distribution. Du
ring the talk we consider an analogue of this problem concerning the funct
ion $r(n)$\, which counts the occurrences of the block $11$ in the binary
expansion of $n$. In particular\, we prove that the distribution of $r(n+
t)-r(n)$ is approximately Gaussian as well. We also discuss a generalizati
on to an arbitrary block of binary digits. This is a joint work with Lukas

by Shunsuke Usuki (Kyoto University) as part of One World Numeration semin

rices on $\\mathrm{SL}(3\,\\mathbb{R})/\\mathrm{SL}(3\,\\mathbb{Z})$\, and
a groundbreaking result was shown by Einsiedler\, Katok and Lindenstrauss
from the measure rigidity for this action\, saying that Littlewood's conj

sets of small Hausdorff dimension\, an estimate of the number of integers
$n$ which make $n\\|n\\alpha\\|\\|n\\beta\\|$ small. The keys for the pro
of are the measure rigidity and further studies on behavior of empirical m

inar\n\n\nAbstract\nWe elaborate on a problem raised by Schmidt in 1967: r
ational approximation of linear subspaces of $\\mathbb{R}^n$. In order to
study the quality approximation of irrational numbers by rational ones\, o
ne can introduce the exponent of irrationality of a number. We can then ge
neralize this notion in the framework of vector subspaces for the approxim
ation of a subspace by so-called rational subspaces.\n\nAfter briefly intr
oducing the tools for constructing this generalization\, I will present th
e different possible studies of this object. Finally I will explain how we
can construct spaces with prescribed exponents.\n
