A general framework for investigating topological actions of \mathbb{Z}^d on compact metric spaces was proposed by Boyle and Lind in terms of expansive behavior along lower-dimensional subspaces of \mathbb{R}^d. Here we completely describe this expansive behavior for the class of algebraic \mathbb{Z}^d-actions given by commuting automorphisms of compact abelian groups. The description uses the logarithmic image of an algebraic variety together with a directional version of Noetherian modules… 
Irreducibility, Homoclinic Points and Adjoint Actions of Algebraic ℤ d -Actions of Rank One
In this paper we consider ℤ d -actions, d ≥ 1, by automorphisms of compact connected abelian groups which contain at least one expansive automorphism (such actions are called algebraic ℤ d -actions
Directional uniformities, periodic points, and entropy
Dynamical systems generated by $d\ge2$ commuting homeomorphisms (topological $\mathbb{Z}^d$-actions) contain within them structures on many scales, and in particular contain many actions of
A generalization of the simulation theorem for semidirect products
We generalize a result of Hochman in two simultaneous directions: instead of realizing an arbitrary effectively closed $\mathbb{Z}^{d}$ action as a factor of a subaction of a $\mathbb{Z}^{d+2}$ -SFT
Periodic point data detects subdynamics in entropy rank one
A framework for understanding the geometry of continuous actions of $\mathbb Z^d$ was developed by Boyle and Lind using the notion of expansive behaviour along lower-dimensional subspaces. For
The centralizer of Komuro-expansive flows and expansive $${{\mathbb {R}}}^d$$Rd actions
In this paper we study the centralizer of flows and $${{\mathbb {R}}}^d$$Rd-actions on compact Riemannian manifolds. We prove that the centralizer of every $$C^\infty $$C∞ Komuro-expansive flow with
Homoclinic points and isomorphism rigidity of algebraic ℤd-actions on zero-dimensional compact abelian groups
Letd>1, and letα andβ be mixing ℤd-actions by automorphisms of zero-dimensional compact abelian groupsX andY, respectively. By analyzing the homoclinic groups of certain sub-actions ofα andβ we prove
Algebraic ℤ^{}-actions of entropy rank one
The measure entropy of a class of skew products is computed, where the fiber maps are elements from an algebraic Z d -action of entropy rank one, and this leads to a formula for the topological entropy of continuous skew products as the maximum of a finite number of topological pressures.
Limit sets for modules over groups on CAT(0) spaces: from the Euclidean to the hyperbolic
The observation that the zero‐dimensional Geometric Invariant Σ 0(G;A) of Bieri–Neumann–Strebel–Renz can be interpreted as a horospherical limit set opens a direct trail from Poincaréˈs limit set
In 1967 Furstenberg proved that every infinite closed subset of T = R/Z simultaneously invariant under multiplication by 2 and by 3 is equal to T (cf. [8]), which motivated the still unresolved
Dynamics of expansive group actions on the circle
In this paper, we study the topological dynamics of C 0 and C 1 actions on the circle by a countably generated group , under the assumption that the re is expansive orbit behavior. Our first result


Homoclinic points of algebraic ℤ^{}-actions
An algebraic zd-action is an action of Zd by (continuous) automorphisms of a compact abelian group. The dynamics of a single group automorphism have been investigated in great detail over the past
Expansive Subdynamics
This paper provides a framework for studying the dynamics of commuting homeomorphisms. Let α be a continuous action of Zd on an infinite compact metric space. For each subspace V of Rd we introduce a
Mahler measure and entropy for commuting automorphisms of compact groups
SummaryWe compute the joint entropy ofd commuting automorphisms of a compact metrizable group. LetRd = ℤ[u1±1,...,[d1±1] be the ring of Laurent polynomials ind commuting variables, andM be
Fitting ideals for finitely presented algebraic dynamical systems
Summary. We consider a class of algebraic dynamical systems introduced by Kitchens and Schmidt. Under a weak finiteness condition — the Descending Chain Condition — the dual modules have finite
The logarithmic limit-set of an algebraic variety
Let C be the field of complex numbers and V a subvariety of (C{O})n. To study the "exponential behavior of Vat infinity", we define V(a) as the set of limitpoints on the unit sphere Sn-1 of the set
The geometry of the set of characters iduced by valuations.
1. 1. Let k be a field endowed with a real valuation v: k-^R^. That is, a map which assigns to each non-zero element a e k a real number v (a) and to 0 e k the symbol i;(0) = GO, such that v(ab) =
Common homoclinic points of commuting toral automorphisms
The points homoclinic to 0 under a hyperbolic toral automorphism form the intersection of the stable and unstable manifolds of 0. This is a subgroup isomorphic to the fundamental group of the torus.
Almost block independence and bernoullicity of ℤd-actions by automorphisms of compact abelian groups
SummaryWe prove that a ℤd-action by automorphisms of a compact, abelian group is Bernoulli if and only if it has completely positive entropy. The key ingredients of the proof are the extension of
Dynamical Systems of Algebraic Origin
This chapter discusses group actions by automorphisms fo compact groups, which are actions on compact abelian groups and the consequences of these actions on entropy.
