Abstract: 

Model sets, which go back to Yves Meyer (1972), are a versatile class of structures with amazing harmonic properties. They are particularly relevant for mathematical quasicrystals. More recently, also systems such as the square-free integers or the visible lattice points have been studied in this context, leading to the theory of weak model sets. This talk will review some of the development, and introduce some of the concepts in the field.
