Synopsis:

The seminar is devoted to combinatorics on infinite words, non-standard numeration systems and aperiodic tilings of the space.

The seminar often hosts foreign researcher. Students participate actively in solution of open problems in the field.

Requirements:

Knowledge of mathematics in the extent of the

FNSPE bachelor's specialization Mathematical Informatics or Mathematical modeling.

Syllabus of lectures:

1. Combinatorics on words over a finite alphabet, infinite aperiodic words with low complexity. Morphisms and substitutions, their incidence matrix.

2. Aperiodic tilings of the space, self-similarity, aperiodic Delone sets, cut-and-project sets, mathematical models of quasicrystals.

3. Number representation in systems with irrational base, arithmetics in such systems.
