Covering Space in the Besicovitch Topology

  • Julien Cervelle
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 7183)


This paper studies how one can spread points in the Besicovitch space in order to keep them far one from another. We first study the general case and then what happens if the chosen points are all regular Toeplitz configurations or all quasiperiodic configurations.
