Z(d) group shifts and Bernoulli factors
In this paper, a group shift is an expansive action of Z(d) on a compact metrizable zero-dimensional group by continuous automorphisms. All group shifts factor topologically onto equal-entropy Bernoulli shifts; abelian group shifts factor by continuous group homomorphisms onto canonical equal-entropy Bernoulli group shifts; and completely positive entropy abelian group shifts are weakly algebraically equivalent to these Bernoulli factors. A completely positive entropy group (even vector) shift need not be topologically conjugate to a Bernoulli shift, and the Pinsker factor of a vector shift need not split topologically.
