Abstract:
We establish formulas for bounds on the Haudorff measure of the intersection of certain Cantor sets with their translates. As a consequence we obtain a formula for the Hausdorff dimensions of these intersections.

Abstract:
Let $E, F\subset \R^d$ be two self-similar sets. Under mild conditions, we show that $F$ can be $C^1$-embedded into $E$ if and only if it can be affinely embedded into $E$; furthermore if $F$ can not be affinely embedded into $E$, then the Hausdorff dimension of the intersection $E\cap f(F)$ is strictly less than that of $F$ for any $C^1$-diffeomorphism $f$ on $\R^d$. Under certain circumstances, we prove the logarithmic commensurability between the contraction ratios of $E$ and $F$ if $F$ can be affinely embedded into $E$. As an application, we show that $\dim_HE\cap f(F)<\min\{\dim_HE, \dim_HF\}$ when $E$ is any Cantor-$p$ set and $F$ any Cantor-$q$ set, where $p,q\geq 2$ are two integers with $\log p/\log q\not \in \Q$. This is related to a conjecture of Furtenberg about the intersections of Cantor sets.

Abstract:
In the present paper, We introduce a pair of middle Cantor sets namely $(C_\alpha, C_\beta)$ having stable intersection, while the product of their thickness is smaller than one. Furthermore, the arithmetic difference $C_\alpha- \lambda C_\beta$ contains at least one interval for each nonzero number $\lambda$.

Abstract:
Let C be a Cantor set. For a real number t let C+t be the translate of C by t, We say two real numbers s,t are equivalent if the intersection of C and C+s is a translate of the intersection of C and C+t. We consider a class of Cantor sets determined by similarities with one fixed positive contraction ratio. For this class of Cantor set, we show that an "initial segment" of the intersection of C and C+t is a self-similar set with contraction ratios that are powers of the contraction ratio used to describe C as a self- similar set if and only if t is equivalent to a rational number. Our results are new even for the middle thirds Cantor set.

Abstract:
Motivated by a question of Erd\H{o}s, this paper considers questions concerning the discrete dynamical system on the 3-adic integers given by multiplication by 2. Let the 3-adic Cantor set consist of all 3-adic integers whose expansions use only the digits 0 and 1. The exception set is the set of 3-adic integers whose forward orbits under this action intersects the 3-adic Cantor set infinitely many times. It has been shown that this set has Hausdorff dimension 0. Approaches to upper bounds on the Hausdorff dimensions of these sets leads to study of intersections of multiplicative translates of Cantor sets by powers of 2. More generally, this paper studies the structure of finite intersections of general multiplicative translates of the 3-adic Cantor set by integers 1 < M_1 < M_2 < ...< M_n. These sets are describable as sets of 3-adic integers whose 3-adic expansions have one-sided symbolic dynamics given by a finite automaton. As a consequence, the Hausdorff dimension of such a set is always of the form log(\beta) for an algebraic integer \beta. This paper gives a method to determine the automaton for given data (M_1, ..., M_n). Experimental results indicate that the Hausdorff dimension of such sets depends in a very complicated way on the integers M_1,...,M_n.

Abstract:
We show that there exist $(d-1)$ - Ahlfors regular compact sets $E \subset \mathbb{R}^{d}, d\geq 2$ such that for any $t< d-1$, we have \[ \sup_T \frac{\mathcal{H}^{d-1}(E\cap T)}{w(T)^t}<\infty \] where the supremum is over all tubes $T$ with width $w(T) >0$. This settles a question of T. Orponen. The sets we construct are random Cantor sets, and the method combines geometric and probabilistic estimates on the intersections of these random Cantor sets with affine subspaces.

Abstract:
Let $\Gamma_{\beta,N}$ be the $N$-part homogeneous Cantor set with $\beta\in(1/(2N-1),1/N)$. Any string $(j_\ell)_{\ell=1}^\N$ with $j_\ell\in\{0,\pm 1,...,\pm(N-1)\}$ such that $t=\sum_{\ell=1}^\N j_\ell\beta^{\ell-1}(1-\beta)/(N-1)$ is called a code of $t$. Let $\mathcal{U}_{\beta,\pm N}$ be the set of $t\in[-1,1]$ having a unique code, and let $\mathcal{S}_{\beta,\pm N}$ be the set of $t\in\mathcal{U}_{\beta,\pm N}$ which make the intersection $\Gamma_{\beta,N}\cap(\Gamma_{\beta,N}+t)$ a self-similar set. We characterize the set $\mathcal{U}_{\beta,\pm N}$ in a geometrical and algebraical way, and give a sufficient and necessary condition for $t\in\mathcal{S}_{\beta,\pm N}$. Using techniques from beta-expansions, we show that there is a critical point $\beta_c\in(1/(2N-1),1/N)$, which is a transcendental number, such that $\mathcal{U}_{\beta,\pm N}$ has positive Hausdorff dimension if $\beta\in(1/(2N-1),\beta_c)$, and contains countably infinite many elements if $\beta\in(\beta_c,1/N)$. Moreover, there exists a second critical point $\alpha_c=\big[N+1-\sqrt{(N-1)(N+3)}\,\big]/2\in(1/(2N-1),\beta_c)$ such that $\mathcal{S}_{\beta,\pm N}$ has positive Hausdorff dimension if $\beta\in(1/(2N-1),\alpha_c)$, and contains countably infinite many elements if $\beta\in[\alpha_c,1/N)$.

Abstract:
In 1954 Marstrand proved that if K is a subset of R^2 with Hausdorff dimension greater than 1, then its one-dimensional projection has positive Lebesgue measure for almost-all directions. In this article, we give a combinatorial proof of this theorem when K is the product of regular Cantor sets of class C^{1+a}, a>0, for which the sum of their Hausdorff dimension is greater than 1.

Abstract:
This paper continues the study of the structure of finite intersections of general multiplicative translates $\mathcal{C}(M_1,\ldots,M_n)=\frac{1}{M_1}\Sigma_{3,\bar{2}}\cap\cdots\cap\frac{1}{M_n}\Sigma_{3,\bar{2}}$ for integers $1\leq M_1<\cdots

Abstract:
Suppose that $\mathcal{C}$ is the space of all middle Cantor sets. We characterize all triples $(\alpha,~\beta,~\lambda)\in \mathcal{C}\times\mathcal{C}\times \mathbb{R}^*$ that satisfy $C_\alpha- \lambda C_\beta=[-\lambda,~1]. $ Also all triples (that are dense in $\mathcal{C}\times\mathcal{C}\times \mathbb{R}^*$) has been determined such that $C_\alpha- \lambda C_\beta$ forms the attractor of an iterated function system. Then we found a new family of the pair of middle Cantor sets $\mathcal{P}$ in a way that for each $(C_\alpha,~ C_\beta)\in\mathcal{P}$, there exists a dense subfield $F\subset \mathbb{R}$ such that for each $\mu \in F$, the set $C_\alpha- \mu C_\beta$ contains an interval or has zero Lebesgue measure. In sequel, conditions on the functions $f, ~g$ and the pair $(C_\alpha,~C_\beta)$ is provided which $f(C_{\alpha})- g(C_{\beta})$ contains an interval. This leads us to denote another type of stability in the intersection of two Cantor sets. We prove the existence of this stability for regular Cantor sets that have stable intersection and its absence for those which the sum of their Hausdorff dimension is less than one. At the end, special middle Cantor sets $C_\alpha$ and $C_\beta$ are introduced. Then the iterated function system corresponding to the attractor $C_{\alpha}-\frac{2\alpha}{\beta}C_\beta$ is characterized. Some specifications of the attractor has been presented that keep our example as an exception. We also show that $\sqrt{C_{\alpha}}$ - $\sqrt{C_{\beta}}$ contains at least one interval.
