Infinite words containing squares at every position
(EDP Sciences, 2010)
Richomme asked the following question: what is the infimum of the real numbers α > 2 such that there exists an infinite word that avoids α-powers but contains arbitrarily large squares beginning at every position? We resolve ...
Cyclic Complexity of Some Infinite Words and Generalizations
Cassaigne et al. introduced the cyclic complexity function c_x(n), which gives the number of cyclic conjugacy classes of length-n factors of a word x. We study the behavior of this function for the Fibonacci word f and the ...
Words without Near-Repetitions
(Canadian Mathematical Society, 1992-06-01)
We find an infinite word w on four symbols with the following property: Two occurrences of any block in w must be separated by more than the length of the block. That is, in any subword of w of the form xyx, the length of ...
