The Rauzy Gasket
We define the Rauzy gasket as a subset of the standard two-dimensional simplex associated with letter frequencies of ternary episturmian words. We prove that the Rauzy gasket is homeomorphic to the usual Sierpiński gasket (by a two-dimensional generalization of the Minkowski ? function) and to the Apollonian gasket (by a map which is smooth on the boundary of the simplex). We prove that it is also homothetic to the invariant set of the fully subtractive algorithm, hence of measure 0.
