If a substitution τ over a three-letter alphabet has a positively linear complexity, that is,   ( ) with  , there are only 4 possibilities:  ,  ,   or 3n . The first three cases have been studied by many authors, but the case 3n remained unclear. This leads us to consider the triplex substitution  ,  ,  . Studying the factor structure of its fixed point, which is quite different from the other cases, we show that it is of complexity 3n . We remark that the triplex substitution is also a typical example of invertible substitution over a three-letter alphabet. To cite this article: B. Tan et al., C. R. Acad. Sci. Paris, Ser. I 346 (2008).

Si une substitution τ sur un alphabet de trois lettres a une complexité positivement linéaire, cʼest-à-dire   ( ) où  , alors il nʼy a que quatre possibilités :  ,  ,   ou 3n . Les trois premiers cas ont été étudiés par différents auteurs, mais le cas 3n reste non entièrement élucidé. Nous considérons donc la substitution triplexe  ,  ,  . Analysant la structure des facteurs de son point fixe nous montrons que sa complexité est 3n . La substitution triplexe est un exemple typique de substitution inversible sur un alphabet de trois lettres. Pour citer cet article : B. Tan et al., C. R. Acad. Sci. Paris, Ser. I 346 (2008).
