The notion of natural coding of rotation, sometimes better called natural coding of translation of the torus, goes back to the works of Morse and Hedlund [MH40], and to the seed paper of Rauzy [Rau82] (study of the Tribonacci word) in dimension 2. Nonetheless, the terminology appears later (for instance in [CFZ01] and [Fog02]).
Roughly speaking, a ”natural” coding of rotation denotes a word obtained as the coding trajectory of a point of the torus, under the action of a rotation, with respect to a remarkable partition that can be covered such that the induced rotation on the associated fundamental domain coincides, on each covered piece, with a translation.
Although much studied, this notion has never been well defined; in particular, there is no consensus on the topological/metrical conditions that should satisfy the pieces of the partition – without such conditions, the definition is trivial.
The aim of this talk is to introduce a new topological definition, with a minimal set of hypotheses.
In particular, this definition should allow the study of words with infinite imbalance (like those constructed in [CFZ01], [DHS13] or in my thesis).
