Symbolic dynamics and representations
Journées Nationales de Calcul Formel. 16 – 20 Janvier 2017, Les cours du CIRM, no. 1 (2017), Talk no. 1, 16 p.

The object of study of symbolic dynamics are discrete dynamical systems made of infinite sequences of symbols, with the shift acting on them. They come as codings of trajectories of points in a dynamical system according to a given partition. They are used as discretization tools for analyzing such trajectories, but they also occur in a natural way in arithmetics for instance. We first will recall basic definitions concerning symbolic dynamics and illustrate them with transformations like beta-numeration and continued fractions. We then focus on orbits that are relevant in computer science, namely finite and periodic ones, together by alluding to numerical issues for the computation of orbits.
