Abstract
We show how to construct a Markov partition that reflects the
geometrical action of a hyperbolic automorphism of the ntorus. The transition
matrix is the transpose of the matrix induced by the automorphism in udimensional
homology, provided this is nonnegative. (Here u denotes the
expanding dimension.) That condition is satisfied, at least for some power
of the original automorphism, under a certain nondegeneracy condition on
the Galois group of the characteristic polynomial. The (nu) rectangles are
constructed by an iterated function system, and they resemble the product
of the projection of a udimensional face of the unit cube onto the unstable
subspace and the projection of minus the orthogonal (n  u)dimensional face
onto the stable subspace.
