Symbolic dynamics is a rapidly growing area of dynamical systems. Although it originated as a method to study general dynamical systems, it has found significant uses in coding for data storage and transmission as well as in linear algebra. This book is the first general textbook on symbolic dynamics and its applications to coding. Mathematical prerequisites are relatively modest (mainly linear algebra at the undergraduate level) especially for the first half of the book. Topics are carefully developed and motivated with many examples, and there are over 500 exercises to test the reader's understanding. The last chapter contains a survey of more advanced topics, and a comprehensive bibliography is included. This book will serve as an introduction to symbolic dynamics for advanced undergraduate students in mathematics, engineering, and computer science.

Symbolic dynamics originated as a tool for analyzing dynamical systems and flows by discretizing space as well as time. The development of information theory gave impetus to the study of symbol sequences as objects in their own right. Today, symbolic dynamics has expanded to encompass multi-dimensional arrays of symbols and has found diverse applications both within and beyond mathematics. This volume is based on the AMS Short Course on Symbolic Dynamics and its Applications. It contains introductory articles on the fundamental ideas of the field and on some of its applications.Topics include the use of symbolic dynamics techniques in coding theory and in complex dynamics, the relation between the theory of multi-dimensional systems and the dynamics of tilings, and strong shift equivalence theory. Contributors to the volume are experts in the field and are clear expositors. The book is suitable for graduate students and research mathematicians interested in symbolic dynamics and its applications.

Dynamische Systeme stellen einen unverzichtbaren Bestandteil mathematischer Modellbildung für Anwendungen aller Art dar, angefangen von Physik über Biologie bis hin zur Informatik. Dieser Band führt in diese Theorie ein und beschreibt Methoden und Dynamiken, wie sie für eine systematische Modellbildung auch in den Anwendungen notwendig erscheinen. Wesentliche Grundzüge der Theorie werden beispielhaft im ersten Kapitel erläutert. Es schließt sich eine Einführung in niedrig-dimensionale Dynamiken an (u.a. rationale Funktionen), gefolgt von topologischer Dynamik (z.B. Attraktoren, Entropie und chaotisches Verhalten), differenzierbarer Dynamik (z.B. Liapunoff-Exponenten, Strukturstabilität und Hyperbolizität), Ergodentheorie (z.B. Ergodensätze, invariante Maße, Konservativität) und schließlich thermodynamischer Formalismus (z.B. Gibbs-Theorie, Zetafunktionen).

This book connects coding theory with actual applications in consumer electronics and with other areas of mathematics. ""Different Aspects of Coding Theory"" covers in detail the mathematical foundations of digital data storage and makes connections to symbolic dynamics, linear systems, and finite automata. It also explores the use of algebraic geometry within coding theory and examines links with finite geometry, statistics, and theoretical computer science. This book features: a unique combination of mathematical theory and engineering practice; much diversity and variety among chapters, thus offering broad appeal; and, topics relevant to mathematicians, statisticians, engineers, and computer scientists. Contributions are by recognized scholars.

Formal Languages, Automata and Numeration Systems 1

Introduction to Combinatorics on Words

Formal Languages, Automaton and Numeration Systems presents readers with a review of research related to formal language theory, combinatorics on words or numeration systems, such as Words, DLT (Developments in Language Theory), ICALP, MFCS (Mathematical Foundation of Computer Science), Mons Theoretical Computer Science Days, Numeration, CANT (Combinatorics, Automata and Number Theory). Combinatorics on words deals with problems that can be stated in a non-commutative monoid, such as subword complexity of finite or infinite words, construction and properties of infinite words, unavoidable regularities or patterns. When considering some numeration systems, any integer can be represented as a finite word over an alphabet of digits. This simple observation leads to the study of the relationship between the arithmetical properties of the integers and the syntactical properties of the corresponding representations. One of the most profound results in this direction is given by the celebrated theorem by Cobham. Surprisingly, a recent extension of this result to complex numbers led to the famous Four Exponentials Conjecture. This is just one example of the fruitful relationship between formal language theory (including the theory of automata) and number theory.

This book provides a self-contained comprehensive exposition of the theory of dynamical systems. The book begins with a discussion of several elementary but crucial examples. These are used to formulate a program for the general study of asymptotic properties and to introduce the principal theoretical concepts and methods. The main theme of the second part of the book is the interplay between local analysis near individual orbits and the global complexity of the orbit structure. The third and fourth parts develop the theories of low-dimensional dynamical systems and hyperbolic dynamical systems in depth. The book is aimed at students and researchers in mathematics at all levels from advanced undergraduate and up.

The need for a comprehensive survey-type exposition on formal languages and related mainstream areas of computer science has been evident for some years. In the early 1970s, when the book Formal Languages by the second mentioned editor appeared, it was still quite feasible to write a comprehensive book with that title and include also topics of current research interest. This would not be possible anymore. A standard-sized book on formal languages would either have to stay on a fairly low level or else be specialized and restricted to some narrow sector of the field. The setup becomes drastically different in a collection of contributions, where the best authorities in the world join forces, each of them concentrat ing on their own areas of specialization. The present three-volume Handbook constitutes such a unique collection. In these three volumes we present the current state of the art in formallanguage theory. We were most satisfied with the enthusiastic response given to our request for contributions by specialists representing various subfields. The need for a Handbook of Formal Languages was in many answers expressed in different ways: as an easily accessible his torical reference, a general source of information, an overall course-aid, and a compact collection of material for self-study. We are convinced that the final result will satisfy such various needs.

Topological and Symbolic Dynamics

"A dynamical system is a continuous self-map of a compact metric space. Topological dynamics studies the iterations of such a map, or equivalently the trajectories of points of the state space. The basic concepts of topological dynamics are: minimality, transitivity, recurrence, shadowing property, stability, equicontinuity, sensitivity, attractors and topological entropy. Symbolic dynamics studies dynamical systems whose state spaces are zero-dimensional and consist of sequences of symbols. The main classes of symbolic dynamical systems are: adding machines, subshifts of finite type, sofic subshifts, Sturman, substitutive and Toeplitz subshifts, and cellular automata."--BOOK JACKET.
