Linear Recursive Odometers and Beta-Expansions

Published Online: 2017-01-13 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.1515/udt-2016-0010


The aim of this paper is to study the connection between different properties related to β-expansions. In particular, the relation between two conditions, both ensuring purely discrete spectrum of the odometer, is analyzed. The first one is the so-called Hypothesis B for the G-odometers and the second one is denoted by (QM) and it has been introduced in the framework of tilings associated to Pisot β-numerations.

Keywords: beta-expansions; odometer; purely discrete spectrum; finiteness property
