Almost-periodic algebras and their automorphisms



The problem concerning the form of the maximal ideal space of an almost-periodic algebra formed by functions on ℝ m is considered. It is shown that this space is homeomorphic to the topological group dual to the group of frequencies of the algebra under consideration. In the case of a quasiperiodic algebra, the mappings of ℝ n generating automorphisms of the algebra are described. Several specific examples are given and a relation to the theory of quasicrystals is indicated.
