Classification of sofic projective subdynamics of multidimensional shifts of finite type. (English) Zbl 1353.37036
The authors study which 1D subshifts arise as projective subdynamics of a 2D shift of finite type (SFT), that is as the set of rows occuring in its 2D configurations. One can distinguish between stable or unstable projective subdynamics depending on whether the 1D subshift is realized as the set of rows of a finite-width strip avoiding the forbidden patterns of the 2D subshift.
It is proven that infinite stable projective subdynamics of 2D SFTs are exactly the sofic subshifts that have positive entropy or a so-called good set of periods (a condition linking its periods and that of a minimal cover) but no universal period (configurations should not be too close to being periodic).
Moreover, the sofic subshifts that arise as unstable projective subdynamics of a 2D SFT are exactly those of infinite type that have positive entropy or no universal period.
The finite union of projective subdynamics (resp. stable) of SFTs is itself the projective subdynamics (resp. stable) of some SFT, whenever it contains two periodic configurations. The projective subdynamics of a 2D SFT with the uniform filling property are stable.
The article presents several general (long) constructions, and gives specific examples, including effective subshifts that cannot be projective subdynamics of SFTs.
