Toeplitz subshifts with trivial centralizers and positive entropy

Kostya Medynets and James P. Talisse

Vol. 12 (2019), No. 3, 395–410

Given a dynamical system (X,G), the centralizer C(G) denotes the group of all homeomorphisms of X which commute with the action of G. This group is sometimes called the automorphism group of the dynamical system (X,G). We generalize the construction of Bułatek and Kwiatkowski (1992) to d-Toeplitz systems by identifying a class of d-Toeplitz systems that have trivial centralizers. We show that this class of d-Toeplitz systems with trivial centralizers contains systems with positive topological entropy.
