Palindromic subshifts and simple periodic groups of intermediate growth Academic Article uri icon


  • 2018 Department of Mathematics, Princeton University. We describe a new class of groups of Burnside type, by giving a procedure transforming an arbitrary non-free minimal action of the dihedral group on a Cantor set into an orbit-equivalent action of an infinite finitely generated periodic group. We show that if the associated Schreier graphs are linearly repetitive, then the group is of intermediate growth. In particular, this gives first examples of simple groups of intermediate growth.
