Predictive sets


A subset of the integers P is called predictive if for all zero-entropy processes X_i; i in Z, X_0 can be determined by X_i; i in P. The classical formula for entropy shows that the set of natural numbers forms a predictive set. In joint work with Benjamin Weiss, we will explore some necessary and some sufficient conditions for a set to be predictive. These sets are related to Riesz sets (as defined by Y. Meyer) which arise in the study of singular measures. This and several questions will be discussed during the talk.
