Abstract. The set Z of -integers is a Meyer set when is a Pisot
number, and thus there exists a nite set F such that Z Z  Z +F .
We give nite automata describing the expansions of the elements of
Z and of Z Z . We present a construction of a such a nite set F ,
and a method to minimize the size of F . We obtain in this way a nite
transducer that performs the decomposition of the elements of Z Z
as a sum belonging to Z + F .
1 Introduction
The so-called Meyer sets have been introduced by Meyer [11, 12] under the name
of \quasicrystals" in order to formalize the quasicrystals discovered by the physi-
cists in the eighties. A set X is a Delaunay set if it is uniformly discrete and
relatively dense. A set X is a Meyer set if it is a Delaunay set and there exists
