Abstract

We present a general formalism for diffraction from a one-dimensional quasicrystal with arbitrary length scales and sequences. The notion of sub-quasi-lattices is introduced and the effect of different basis on different sites is studied. The relevance of this work for the study of vibrational and electronic spectra of the chain is discussed.
