Condensed extracts of commonly recurring topics.

Diophantine approximation and aperiodic order

Lecture notes covering the following topics: background on Diophantine approximation, shift spaces and Sturmian words, point sets in Euclidean space, cut and project sets, crystallographic restriction and construction of cut and project sets with prescribed rotational symmetries, a dynamical formulations of pattern recognition in cut and project sets, a discussion of diffraction, and a proof that cut and project sets have pure point diffraction measures.
