On Self-Similar Subgroups in the Sense of IFS

  • 1 Department of Mathematics, Anadolu University,, Eskişehir, Turkey


In this paper, we first give several properties with respect to subgroups of self-similar groups in the sense of iterate function system (IFS). We then prove that some subgroups of p-adic numbers ℚp are strong self-similar in the sense of IFS.
