Mini-Workshop: Combinatorics on Words

Valerie Berthe, Juhani Karhumäki, Dirk Nowotka, Jeffrey Shallit (Eds.), Mini-Workshop: Combinatorics on Words, Oberwolfach Reports 7, EMS Publishing House, 2010.


The area of combinatorics on words is concerned with properties of sequences of symbols. It is characteristic to the field that questions arise from various mathematical problems, and hence, many fundamental results on words have been established in different areas. Over the last two decades the theory has developed into a quickly growing topic of its own. This work-shop was dedicated to reflect on the current status of the field, discuss the impact of recent results, and provide new research challenges. This is a report on the meeting and presentation of extended abstracts of the lectures.
