A new relation between geometric and dynamical properties of objects such as tilings and Delone sets
Let P be an object such as tiling, Delone set and weighted Dirac comb. There corresponds a dynamical system to P, called the corresponding dynamical system. Such dynamical systems are geometric analogues of symbolic dynamics. It is well-known that there are correspondences between geometric properties of P and properties of the corresponding dynamical system. In this article we give a new correspondence. In other words, we characterize the property that the group of topological eigenvalues for the corresponding dynamical system is not discrete, in terms of a geometric property of P.
