Unformatted text preview: y compact set S diam(Ti (S )) ≤ ri · diam(S ) (see Exercise 2.4.3) and so for any sequence i1 , i2 , ..., ik , diam(Tik ...Ti1 (S )) ≤ rik · ... · ri1 · diam(S ) ≤ (max ri )k · diam(S ) (2.11) To show A is the closure of Σ, we must show for every point (x, y ) ∈ A, and for every ǫ &gt; 0, there is some point (xj , yj ) ∈ Σ with d((x, y ), (xj , yj )) &lt; ǫ. So take k large enough that (max ri )k · diam(A) &lt; ǫ. Now because n Aik ...i1 A= ik ,...,i1 =1 if (x, y ) ∈ A, then (x, y ) ∈ Ai′ ...i′ for some i′ , ..., i′ . We must show some point 1 k 1 k of Σ lies in Ai′ ...i′ . 1 k This relies on the randomness of the sequence producing Σ. Suppose the point (x0 , y0 ) is the ﬁxed point of T1 . Then (x0 , y0 ) ∈ A1 . Next, (x1 , y1 ) = Ti1 (x0 , y0 ) ∈ Ai1 1 . Next, (x2 , y2 ) = Ti2 (x1 , y1 ) ∈ Ai2 i1 1 . Continuing, we see each successive application of Tij has this eﬀect on the address of the region containing (xj , yj ): the address digits are shifted to the right and ij is inserted in the left-most location.
