Abstract:In this dissertation, we study a family of non-standard digital representations in base 3. Let A be an index set such that A={0,u1,u2}, where u1 is equivalent to 1 (mod 3) and u2 is equivalent to 2 (mod 3). We study the set of integers which can be written as \sum_{i=0}^{\infty}\epsilon_i 3^i, where \epsilon_i is in A. Most of the work in this dissertation is about the case that the index set A={0,1,5}. We are particularly interested in the maximal sets of consecutive integers, the density of the represented numbers and the related generating functions.
