Markoff's property, central words, and Christoffel words

Glen, A.ORCID: 0000-0002-9434-3412 (2007) Markoff's property, central words, and Christoffel words. In: ISM Graduate Student Seminar, 17 October, Montreal, Canada.

Abstract

In this talk I will introduce "Markoff words" as certain factors appearing in bi-infinite words satsifying the "Markoff condition". I will show that these words coincide with a particular family of palindromes called "central words", yielding a new characterization of "Christoffel words". The talk is intended for a general mathematical audience. The talk will be given in english.
