Title: Bratteli Diagrams and Cantor Minimal Systems.

Abstract: A Bratteli diagram is a kind of infinite graph for which a transformation can be defined on its path space. This talk will introduce the diagrams, their associated dynamical systems, and the relationship between these systems and systems described by a minimal homeomorphism acting on a Cantor space.
