**Substitutions in Dynamics, Arithmetics, and Combinatorics**

by Pierre Arnoux, et al.

**Publisher**: Springer 2002**ISBN/ASIN**: 3540441417**ISBN-13**: 9783540441410**Number of pages**: 419

**Description**:

A certain category of infinite strings of letters on a finite alphabet is presented here, chosen among the 'simplest' possible one may build, both because they are very deterministic and because they are built by simple rules (a letter is replaced by a word, a sequence is produced by iteration). These substitutive sequences have a surprisingly rich structure.
