Substitution dynamical systems on infinite alphabets
Annales de l'Institut Fourier, Volume 56 (2006) no. 7, p. 2315-2343
We give a few examples of substitutions on infinite alphabets, and the beginning of a general theory of the associated dynamical systems. In particular, the “drunken man” substitution can be associated to an ergodic infinite measure preserving system, of Krengel entropy zero, while substitutions of constant length with a positive recurrent infinite matrix correspond to ergodic finite measure preserving systems.
Nous étudions quelques exemples de substitutions sur des alphabets infinis, et jetons les bases d’une théorie générale des systèmes dynamiques associés. En particulier la substitution “de l’ivrogne” définit un système préservant une mesure infinie ergodique, d’entropie de Krengel nulle, tandis que les substitutions de longueur constante dont la matrice est positive récurrente correspondent à des systèmes préservant des mesures finies ergodiques.
