Publisher Synopsis

'Mathematicians add hypotheses to theorems either to bar known monsters or provisionally to enable proof, pending better ideas that lead to more general results ... Monsters no more, aperiodic filings have joined mainstream mathematics, and undergraduates drawn here by beautiful graphics will find themselves initiated into algebraic number theory, Lie theory, ergodic theory, dynamical systems, finite-state automata, Fourier analysis, and more.'
