about the school.
. This meeting is meant to be both an international school and conference. To reach these complementary goals, high quality lecturers
of international recognition have been selected. Due to their scientific and pedagogical capabilities, we expect that they will attract a wide audience including Ph.D. students, young researchers as well as more mature researchers. We plan to select contributed talks (30 minutes).
topics of this school
are (3 hours for each subject)
- Symbolic dynamics
- Formal language and automata theory
- Combinatorics on words
- Number theory
- Tilings and cellular automata
- Combinatorial group theory
Two colaborative volumes of the Encyclopedia of Mathematics and its
Application are related to editions of this school. The volume 135
appeared in 2010 and a second volume is in preparation (to be released during 2015).
