Substitutive Tiling and Fractal Geometry
July 4-11th, Guangzhou, China


The goal of this workshop is to gather reasearchers around combinatorics, dynamics and geometry, with special focus on the connections between tilings and fractals. Subtitution tilings are quite well-known from a combinatorial viewpoint (Penrose tiling...). Fractals appear as limit points of such substitution process. Substitution tilings and fractals also naturally appear in several domains of mathematics such as dynamics, geometry, group theory or number theory, related to self-induced structures. The goal of the workshop is to understand better the properties of the tilings that may appear in each of these domains, and investigate connections with such class of tilings and methods known in fractal geometry.

Draft Program


Workshop expenses and hotel fees will be covered by Sun Yat Sen University in Guangzhou. An additional support for local expense is available for 7-8 young colleagues (to be asked to the organizers).


Participants will stay at Wing Kwong Hall guest house or 中山大学西苑宾馆
