Anzai and Furstenberg Transformations on the 2-Torus and Topologically Quasi-Discrete Spectrum

  • Kazunori Kodaka (a1)

Abstract

Let ϕ0 be an Anzai transformation on the 2-torus T2 defined by ϕ0(x,y) = (e2πiθx,xy) and ϕy a Furstenberg transformation on T2 defined by ϕf(x,y) = (e2πiθx,e2πif(x)xy) where θ is an irrational number and f is a real valued continuous function on the 1-torus T. In the present note we will show that ϕf has topologically quasi-discrete spectrum if and only if ϕf is topologically conjugate to ϕ0. Furthermore we will show that for any irrational number θ there is a real valued continuous function f on T such that ϕf does not have topologically quasi-discrete spectrum but is uniquely ergodic.
