Dynamics Lunch

The Dynamics Lunch seminar meets regularly on Tuesdays at 12:00 at the lobby of the Manchester building. Speakers talk not about their own work, but rather about some interesting paper they read (can be classical or new), that they think might be interesting to a broad dynamical audience (many times it is attended also by people from combinatorics/analysis/group theory). Meanwhile all attendants eat fruit and sandwiches. Dynamics lunch seminar

Dynamics Lunch: Yotam Smilansky "The space of quasicrystals."

12:00pm to 1:00pm

Abstract: Cut and project point sets are defined by identifying a strip of a fixed n-dimensional lattice (the "cut"), and projecting the lattice points in that strip to a d-dimensional subspace (the "project"). Such sets have a rich history in the study of mathematical models of quasicrystals, and include well known examples such as the Fibonacci chain and vertex sets of Penrose tilings.
