Spectrum of Lebesgue Measure Zero for Jacobi Matrices of Quasicrystals

Autoren: Siegfried Beckus, Felix Pogorzelski (2013)

We study one-dimensional random Jacobi operators corresponding to strictly ergodic dynamical systems. We characterize the spectrum of these operators via non-uniformity of the transfer matrices and vanishing of the Lyapunov exponent. For aperiodic, minimal subshifts satisfying the so-called Boshernitzan condition this gives that the spectrum is supported on a Cantor set with Lebesgue measure zero. This generalizes earlier results for Schrödinger operators.
