Abstract

The Kolakoski sequence S is the unique element of {1,2}^ω starting with 1 and coinciding with its own run length encoding. We use the parity of the lengths of particular subclasses of initial words of S as a unifying tool to address the links between the main open questions - recurrence, mirror/reversal invariance and asymptotic density of digits. In particular we prove that recurrence implies reversal invariance, and give sufficient 1 conditions which would imply that the density of 1s is 2 .
