On Bohr sets of integer-valued traceless matrices

Alexander Fish


In this paper we show that any Bohr-zero non-periodic set \(B\) of traceless integer valued matrices, denoted by \(\Lambda\), intersects non-trivially the conjugacy class of any matrix from \(\Lambda\). As a corollary, we obtain that the family of characteristic polynomials of \(B\) contains all characteristic polynomials of matrices from \(\Lambda\). The main ingredient used in this paper is an equidistribution result of Burgain–Furman–Lindenstrauss–Mozes.
