Are there chaotic tilings? Academic Article uri icon


  • We develop a class of examples in the form of tiling dynamical systems for use as toy models in statistical mechanics, to analyze the possible existence of disordered crystals. We give the first such models which are disordered in the sense of having no discrete spectrum. * Research supported in part by a grant from the Israel Science and Technology Ministry ** Research supported in part by NSF Grant No. DMS-9001475 1.
