Symbolic Dynamics over Free Groups
MetadataShow full item record
Symbolic dynamics is used to model functions acting on complex topological spaces. This work explores the symbolic dynamics over a non-Abelian group, the free group on two generators. We begin by introducing the fundamentals of symbolic dynamics and Cayley graph coloring. We then explain the relationship between these fields and characterize classes of periodic points of the full shift over the free group.

Metallo, Steven (2014-09-18)Dynamics is a branch of mathematics that studies how systems change with time, and this can be done using function iteration or di erential equations. Our focus is on the dynamics of the circle map function, fn(x) = nx ...
