Title: The Thue-Morse Sequence

Speaker: Andrew Lohr, Rutgers University

Date: Wednesday, April 8, 2015 12:10pm

Location: Graduate Student Lounge, 7th Floor, Hill Center, Rutgers University, Busch Campus, Piscataway, NJ


In this talk, we'll examine fixed points of morphisms of words, a way of constructing interesting infinite words. In particular, we will mostly focus on the Thue-Morse word, which has appearances in many different locations. We'll see some of them. We will also talk about generalizations of this word to a larger alphabet size.
