A direct proof of a result of Thue
(Utilitas Mathematica, 1984)
Abelian complexity of fixed point of morphism 0 ↦ 012, 1 ↦ 02, 2 ↦ 1
We study the combinatorics of vtm, a variant of the Thue-Morse word generated by the non-uniform morphism 0 ↦ 012, 1 ↦ 02, 2 ↦ 1 starting with 0. This infinite ternary sequence appears a lot in the literature and finds ...
Skeleton Cave, Leigh Woods, Bristol
(University of Bristol Spelaeological Society, 2017)
An account is given of the discovery and excavation of this small cave in the 1960s. It is recorded that archaeological finds were made, but of these, only a single human mandible can now be traced. Radiocarbon dating shows ...
Sliding Down Inclines with Fixed Descent Time: a Converse to Galileo's Law of Chords
(Canadian Mathematical Society, 2008-12)
Combinatorics and Algorithmics of Strings
(Dagstuhl Publishing, 2014-03-09)
Strings (aka sequences or words) form the most basic and natural data structure. They occur whenever information is electronically transmitted (as bit streams), when natural language text is spoken or written down (as words ...
Unary patterns under permutations
Thue characterized completely the avoidability of unary patterns. Adding function variables gives a general setting capturing avoidance of powers, avoidance of patterns with palindromes, avoidance of powers under coding, ...
Multi-dimensional sets recognizable in all abstract numeration systems
(EDP Sciences, 2011)
We prove that the subsets of Nd that are S-recognizable for all abstract numeration systems S are exactly the 1-recognizable sets. This generalizes a result of Lecomte and Rigo in the one-dimensional setting.
Mathematical Concepts and Proofs from Nicole Oresme: Using the History of Calculus to Teach Mathematics
This paper examines the mathematical work of the French bishop, Nicole Oresme (c. 1323–1382), and his contributions towards the development of the concept of graphing functions and approaches to investigating infinite ...
Regular Two-Graphs and Equiangular Lines
(University of Winnipeg, 2004)
Regular two-graphs are antipodal distance-regular double coverings of the complete graph, and they have many interesting combinatorial properties. We derive a construction for regular two-graphs containing cliques of ...
Dejean's conjecture holds for n ≥ 27
(EDP Sciences, 2009)
We show that Dejean’s conjecture holds for n ≥ 27. This brings the final resolution of the conjecture by the approach of Moulin Ollagnier within range of the computationally feasible.
