Aperiodic Order and Spectral Properties
Snapshots of modern mathematics from Oberwolfach
Periodic structures like a typical tiled kitchen floor or the arrangement of carbon atoms in a diamond crystal certainly possess a high degree of order. But what is order without periodicity? In this snapshot, we are going to explore highly ordered structures that are substantially nonperiodic, or aperiodic. As we construct such structures, we will discover surprising connections to various branches of mathematics, ma- terials science, and physics. Let us catch a glimpse into the inherent beauty of aperiodic order!
