1211.2250 (Johannes Kellendonk et al.)

Meyer sets, topological eigenvalues, and Cantor fiber bundles    [PDF]

Johannes Kellendonk, Lorenzo Sadun
We introduce two new characterizations of Meyer sets. A repetitive Delone set in $\R^d$ with finite local complexity is topologically conjugate to a Meyer set if and only if it has $d$ linearly independent topological eigenvalues, which is if and only if it is topologically conjugate to a bundle over a $d$-torus with totally disconnected compact fiber and expansive canonical action. "Conjugate to" is a non-trivial condition, as we show that there exist sets that are topologically conjugate to Meyer sets but are not themselves Meyer. We also exhibit a diffractive set that is not Meyer, answering in the negative a question posed by Lagarias, and exhibit a Meyer set for which the measurable and topological eigenvalues are different.
