Four Cycle Free Graphs and Entropy Minimality

Nishant Chandgotia

University of British Columbia

A topological dynamical system (X,T) is said to be entropy minimal if all closed T-invariant subsets of X have entropy strictly less than (X,T). <>In this talk we will discuss the entropy minimality of a class of topological dynamical systems which appear as the space of graph homomorphisms from Z^d to graphs without four cycles; for instance, we will see why the space of 3-colourings of Z^d is entropy minimal even though it does not have any of the nice topological mixing properties.
