Discrepancy and rectifiability of almost linearly repetitive Delone sets

Yotam Smilansky, Yaar Solomon

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We extend a discrepancy bound of Lagarias and Pleasants for local weight distributions on linearly repetitive Delone sets and show that a similar bound holds also for the more general case of Delone sets without finite local complexity if linear repetitivity is replaced by ɛ-linear repetitivity. As a result we establish that Delone sets that are ɛ-linear repetitive for some sufficiently small ɛ are rectifiable, and that incommensurable multiscale substitution tilings are never almost linearly repetitive.
