Abstract

We compare the equivalence relations on real numbers arising from having eventually agreeing α-continued fraction expansion (for each 0 ≤ α ≤ 1) with those from sharing GL(2,Z)- or SL(2,Z)-orbits. We show that the α-relation and the GL(2,Z)-relation of x are identical for any α > 0 when x is of unbounded type. On the other hand, they are not identical for x of bounded type.
