**Ale Jan Homburg** (Universiteit van Amsterdam, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam) *Iterated function systems of linear expanding and contracting maps on the unit interval*

This dynamics depends on the Lyapunov exponent.

For a negative Lyapunov exponent we establish synchronization, meaning convergence of orbits with different initial points. For a vanishing Lyapunov exponent we establish intermittency, where orbits are close for a set of iterates of full density, but are intermittently apart. For a positive Lyapunov exponent we show the existence of an absolutely continuous stationary measure for the two-point dynamics and discuss its consequences.

For nonnegative Lyapunov exponent and pairs $(M,N)$ that are multiplicatively dependent integers, we provide explicit expressions for absolutely continuous stationary measures of the two-point dynamics. These stationary measures are infinite $\sigma$-finite measures in the case of zero Lyapunov exponent.

This is joint work with Charlene Kalle.

In this talk, we consider the partial derivative of Okomoto's functions with respect to the parameter a. We place a significant focus on a = 1/3 to describe the properties of a nowhere differentiable function K(x) for which the set of points of infinite derivative produces an example of a measure zero set with Hausdorff dimension 1.

This is a joint work with T. Mathis and M.Paizanis (undergraduate students) and N.Dalaklis (graduate student). The talk is very accessible and includes many computer graphics.

**Roswitha Hofer** (JKU Linz) *Exact order of discrepancy of normal numbers*

So far the best upper bounds for $D_N$ for explicitly known normal numbers in base $2$ are of the form $ND_N\ll\log^2 N$. The first example is due to Levin (1999), which was later generalized by Becher and Carton (2019). In this talk we discuss the recent result in joint work with Gerhard Larcher that guarantees $ND_N\gg \log^2 N$ for Levin's binary normal number. So EITHER $ND_N\ll \log^2N$ is the best possible order for $D_N$ in $N$ of a normal number OR there exist another example of a binary normal number with a better growth of $ND_N$ in $N$. The recent result for Levin's normal number might support the conjecture that $ND_N\ll \log^2N$ is the best order for $D_N$ in $N$ a normal number can obtain.

**Faustin Adiceam** (Université Paris-Est Créteil) *Badly approximable vectors and Littlewood-type problems*

After outlining some of the latest developments in this very active area of research, we will take an interest in the Littlewood conjecture (c. 1930) and in its variants which all admit a natural formulation in terms of properties satisfied by badly approximable vectors. We will then show how ideas emerging from the mathematical theory of quasicrystals, from numeration systems and from the theory of aperiodic tilings have recently been used to refute the so-called t-adic Littlewood conjecture.

All necessary concepts will be defined in the talk. Joint with Fred Lunnon (Maynooth) and Erez Nesharim (Technion, Haifa).

**Álvaro Bustos-Gajardo** (The Open University) *Quasi-recognizability and continuous eigenvalues of torsion-free S-adic systems*

Using these notions we give S-adic analogues of the notions of column number and height for substitutions, including dynamical and combinatorial interpretations of each, and give a general characterisation of the maximal equicontinuous factor of the identified family of S-adic shifts, showing as a consequence that in this context all continuous eigenvalues must be rational. As well, we employ the tools developed for a first approach to the measurable case.

**David Siukaev** (Higher School of Economics) *Exactness and Ergodicity of Certain Markovian Multidimensional Fraction Algorithms*

In 2013 T. Miernowski and A. Nogueira proved that the Euclidean algorithm and the non-homogeneous Rauzy induction satisfy the intersection property and, as a consequence, are exact. At the end of the article it is stated that other non-homogeneous markovian algorithms (Selmer, Brun and Jacobi-Perron) also satisfy the intersection property and they also exact. However, there is no proof of this. In our paper this proof is obtained by using the structure of the proof of the exactness of the Euclidean algorithm with its generalization and refinement for multidimensional algorithms. We obtained technically complex proofs that differ from the proofs given in the article of T. Miernowski and A. Nogueira by the difficulties of generalization to the multidimensional case.

**Charles Fougeron** (IRIF) *Dynamics of simplicial systems and multidimensional continued fraction algorithms*

Starting from the classical case of Farey's algorithm, which is an “additive” version of Gauss's algorithm, I will present a combinatorial point of view on these algorithms which allows to us to use a random walk approach. In this model, taking a random vector for the Lebesgue measure will correspond to following a random walk with memory in a labelled graph called symplicial system. The laws of probability for this random walk are elementary and we can thus develop probabilistic techniques to study their generic dynamical behaviour. This will lead us to describe a purely graph theoretic criterion to check the convergence of a continued fraction algorithm.

Finally, we establish a precise correspondence between these bifurcations and the bifurcations for the classical family of real quadratic polynomials.

**Michael Drmota** (TU Wien) *(Logarithmic) Densities for Automatic Sequences along Primes and Squares*

The purpose of this talk is to present a corresponding result for subsequences of general automatic sequences along primes and squares. This is a far reaching generalization of two breakthrough results of Mauduit and Rivat from 2009 and 2010, where they solved two conjectures by Gelfond on the densities of 0 and 1 of t(p_n) and t(n^2) (where p_n denotes the sequence of primes).

More technically, one has to develop a method to transfer density results for primitive automatic sequences to logarithmic-density results for general automatic sequences. Then as an application one can deduce that the logarithmic densities of any automatic sequence along squares (n^2)_{n≥0} and primes (p_n)_{n≥1} exist and are computable. Furthermore, if densities exist then they are (usually) rational.

This is a joint work with Boris Adamczewski and Clemens Müllner.

**Tom Kempton** (University of Manchester) *Bernoulli Convolutions and Measures on the Spectra of Algebraic Integers*

\Sigma(\beta) := \{ \sum_{i=1}^n a_i \beta^i : n \in \mathbb{N}, a_i \in A \}.

In the case that beta is Pisot one can study the spectrum of beta dynamically using substitutions or cut and project schemes, and this allows one to see lots of local structure in the spectrum. There are higher dimensional analogues for other algebraic integers. In this talk we will define a random walk on the spectrum of beta and show how, with appropriate renormalisation, this leads to an infinite stationary measure on the spectrum. This measure has local structure analagous to that of the spectrum itself. Furthermore, this measure has deep links with the Bernoulli convolution, and in particular new criteria for the absolute continuity of Bernoulli convolutions can be stated in terms of the ergodic properties of these measures.

**Lukas Spiegelhofer** (Montanuniversität Leoben) *The digits of n+t*

(1) Do we have c_t = δ(0,t) + δ(1,t) + … > 1/2? This is a conjecture due to T. W. Cusick (2011).

(2) What does the probability distribution defined by k → δ(k,t) look like?

We prove that indeed c_t > 1/2 if the binary expansion of t contains at least M blocks of contiguous ones, where M is effective. Our second theorem states that δ(j,t) usually behaves like a normal distribution, which extends a result by Emme and Hubert (2018).

This is joint work with Michael Wallner (TU Wien).

**Jacques Sakarovitch** (IRIF, CNRS et Télécom Paris) *The carry propagation of the successor function*

In the case of the usual base p numeration system, it can be shown that the limit indeed exists and is equal to p/(p-1). We recover a similar value for those numeration systems we consider and for which the limit exists. The problem is less the computation of the carry propagation than the proof of its existence. We address it for various kinds of numeration systems: abstract numeration systems, rational base numeration systems, greedy numeration systems and beta-numeration. This problem is tackled with three different types of techniques: combinatorial, algebraic, and ergodic, each of them being relevant for different kinds of numeration systems.

This work has been published in Advances in Applied Mathematics 120 (2020). In this talk, we shall focus on the algebraic and ergodic methods.

Joint work with V. Berthé (Irif), Ch. Frougny (Irif), and M. Rigo (Univ. Liège).
