We consider a one-dimensional structure obtained by stringing two types of “beads” (short and long bonds) on a line according to a quasiperiodic rule. This model exhibits a new kind of order, intermediate between quasiperiodic and random, with a singular continuous Fourier transform (i.e., neither Dirac peaks nor a smooth structure factor). By means of an exact renormalization transformation acting on the two-parameter family of circle maps that defines the model, we study in a quantitative way… 
The nature of the atomic surfaces of quasiperiodic self-similar structures
Quasiperiodic self-similar chains generated by substitutions (i.e. deterministic concatenation rules) and their diffraction spectra are analysed in a systematic fashion, from the viewpoint of the
Structure factor of 1D systems (superlattices) based on two-letter substitution rules. I. delta (Bragg) peaks
The recent generalization to the case of arbitrary tile lengths and arbitrary scattering factors of the calculation of the structure factor of 1D substitutional systems is studied in detail. This
Quasiperiodicity and magnetic phase transition of a class of one-dimensional aperiodic systems
It has been proven that the quasiperiodicity and magnetic phase transition of a one-dimensional aperiodic system depend on the characteristic values of the corresponding substitution rule. By means
Multifractal analysis in reciprocal space and the nature of the Fourier transform of self-similar structures
The authors propose to use multifractal analysis in reciprocal space as a tool to characterise, in a statistical and global sense, the nature of the Fourier transform of geometrical models for atomic
Weakly Periodic Structures with a Singular Continuous Spectrum
Any translationaly invariant hamiltonian has always classical ground-states with a minimum kind of order which we called “weak periodicity” or equivalently with “local order at all scales”. This
Critical behavior of the aperiodic quantum Ising chain in a transverse magnetic field
We consider the quantum spin-1/2 Ising chain in a uniform transverse magnetic field, with an aperiodic sequence of ferromagnetic exchange couplings. This system is a limiting anisotropic case of the
On a “structure intermediate between quasiperiodic and random”
This paper proves rigorously that the structure factor of the “structure intermediate between quasiperiodic and random” introduced by Aubry. Godréche, and Luck is purely singluar continuous apart
Quasiperiodicity and randomness in tilings of the plane
We define new tilings of the plane with Robinson triangles, by means of generalized inflation rules, and study their Fourier spectrum. Penrose's matching rules are not obeyed; hence the tilings
Renormalisation of Pair Correlations and Their Fourier Transforms for Primitive Block Substitutions
For point sets and tilings that can be constructed with the projection method, one has a good understanding of the correlation structure, and also of the corresponding spectra, both in the dynamical
A devil's staircase in the Zeeman response of the 1D half-filled adiabatic Holstein model
The magnetization of the half-filled 1D adiabatic Holstein model in a magnetic field is investigated at 0 K. It has been proven elsewhere that at large enough electron-phonon coupling the ground


A structure intermediate between quasi-periodic and random
We consider an infinite chain of atoms, where the bond lengths between neighbouring sites take two values, according to a quasi-periodic rule, associated to a circle map with an irrational rotation
Quasiperiodicity and types of order; a study in one dimension
In order to characterise the interplay between quasiperiodicity and order in one dimension, the authors consider sequences of 0 and 1 generated by a circle map. These sequences, which generalise the
Devil's staircase and order without periodicity in classical condensed matter
The existence of incommensurate structures proves that crystal ordering is not always the most stable one for nonquantum matter. Some properties of structures which are obtained by minimizing a free
Locking to incommensurate structures-a model with three competing lengths
A classical pseudo-spin model in one dimension is considered, representing a variation on the Frenkel-Kontorova model to include non-convex interactions, resulting in three competing length scales.
Incommensurate structure with no average lattice : an example of a one-dimensional quasicrystal
We study the ground state of a simple one-dimensional model describing an incommensurate modulation of the vacancy density of a periodic lattice. We show that this structure, through its Fourier
Hierarchical Low-Temperature Behaviour of One-Dimensional Incommensurate Structures
The melting of a one-dimensional incommensurate structure in the nonanalytical regime is analysed. This study is done by a new technique of renormalization in real space with unequal blocks
6-dimensional properties of Al0.86Mn0.14 alloy
The general properties of the phases with the icosahedral point group and long-range orientational order are considered. 6 Goldstone modes ― 3 phonons and 3 phasons ― are shown to exist. A model for

In this paper we study a two‐dimensional wind‐tree model where the diffusors are rectangles periodically disposed. One shows that the motion of the light particle depends strongly on the arithmetic
