On avoidability of formulas with reversal
(EDP Sciences, 2018-02-13)
While a characterization of unavoidable formulas (without reversal) is well-known, little is known about the avoidability of formulas with reversal in general. In this article, we characterize the unavoidable formulas ...
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.
Extremal words in morphic subshifts
Given an infinite word x over an alphabet A, a letter b occurring in x, and a total order \sigma on A, we call the smallest word with respect to \sigma starting with b in the shift orbit closure of x an extremal word of ...
Squares and overlaps in the Thue-Morse sequence and some variants
(EDP Sciences, 2006)
We consider the position and number of occurrences of squares in the Thue-Morse sequence, and show that the corresponding sequences are 2-regular. We also prove that changing any finite but nonzero number of bits in the ...
