Quasicrystals and Fourier analysis
Quasicrystals are non-periodic structures discovered by Shechtman in 1984 (see [Sh]). Nowadays, one of the best mathematical descriptions quasicrystals are the so called "model sets". These sets were introduced by Meyer in [M], many years before the discovery of Shechtman. In that moment, one of the aims of Meyer was to study approximation of algebraic characters by continuous ones in locally compact abelian groups (see also [L]).
Recently, important applications of quasicrystals to Fourier Analysis have been found (see [MM], [GL], [LO], [AACM] ). In this talk we will discuss some of these applications, making focus in those related with problems of sampling and interpolation in Paley Wiener spaces.
