Combinatorics of the Interrupted Period

Abstract:
This article is about discrete periodicities and their combinatorial structures. It presents and describes the unique structure caused by the alteration of a pattern in a repetition. Those alterations of a pattern arise in the context of double squares and were discovered while working on bounding the number of distinct squares in a string. Nevertheless, they can arise in other phenomena and are worth being presented on their own.
