Powers and Anti-Powers in Binary Words
MetadataShow full item record
Fici et al. recently introduced the notion of anti-powers in the context of combinatorics on words. A power (also called tandem repeat) is a sequence of consecutive identical blocks. An anti-power is a sequence of consecutive distinct blocks of the same length. Fici et al. showed that the existence of powers or anti-powers is an unavoidable regularity for sufficiently long words. In this thesis we explore this notion further in the context of binary words and obtain new results.
