Abstract

The open problem

Study the Thue-Morse trace map; in particular, find the asymptotics of the Hausdorff dimension of the spectrum as the coupling constant tends to zero or infinity.

Our research

• We studied the dynamics of the Thue-Morse trace map.

• We developed MATLAB code to help approximate the box-counting dimension, thickness, and Hausdorff measure of the Schrödinger operator with Thue-Morse potential.

• We analysed the resulting data, which confirmed conjectures about the asymptotic behavior of the fractal dimensions of the operator. Asymptotic Spectral Properties of the Schr¨odinger Operator with Thue-
