Renormalizing an infinite rational IET

Abstract Full Text(HTML) Figure(3) Related Papers Cited by
  • We study an interval exchange transformation of $ [0, 1] $ formed by cutting the interval at the points $ \frac{1}{n} $ and reversing the order of the intervals. We find that the transformation is periodic away from a Cantor set of Hausdorff dimension zero. On the Cantor set, the dynamics are nearly conjugate to the $ 2 $–adic odometer.
