# Arithmetic sums of cantor sets

 Page 2 / 6
$C\left(\lambda ,,,A\right)=\sum _{n=0}^{\infty }{\alpha }_{n}{\lambda }^{n}\phantom{\rule{1.em}{0ex}}\text{where}\phantom{\rule{1.em}{0ex}}{\alpha }_{n}\in A\phantom{\rule{3.33333pt}{0ex}}\forall n$

with the following constraints on $A$ :

${a}_{0}=0,\phantom{\rule{1.em}{0ex}}{a}_{k}=1-\lambda ,\phantom{\rule{1.em}{0ex}}\left({a}_{i+1},-,{a}_{i}\right)>\lambda \phantom{\rule{3.33333pt}{0ex}}\text{for}\phantom{\rule{3.33333pt}{0ex}}0\le i\le k-1.$

As in the case of the mid- $\alpha$ Cantor sets $C\left(\lambda \right)$ , homogeneous Cantor sets exhibit self-similarity in the following sense:

$C\left(\lambda ,,,A\right)=\bigcup _{j=0}^{k}\left(\lambda ,·,C,\left(\lambda ,,,A\right),+,{a}_{j}\right).$

An example of this self-similarity can be seen in [link] .

## Cantorvals

Another relevant topological structure is the Cantorval . In loose terms, one could consider Cantorvals as "Cantor sets that contain intervals." To be more precise about this definition, we need to first define a gap of a set to be a bounded connected component of the complement. For example, in the Cantor ternary set $T$ , the interval $\left(\frac{1}{3},,,\frac{2}{3}\right)$ is the largest gap of $T$ .

Now we can formally define a Cantorval. We say that a compact, perfect set $C\subseteq \mathbb{R}$ is an M -Cantorval if every gap of $C$ is accumulated on each side by other gaps and intervals of $C$ . An example of an M -Cantorval is given by Anisca and Chlebovec in [link] ; see [link] .

Similarly, we say that $C$ is an L -Cantorval (or an R -Cantorval ) if every gap of $C$ is accumulated on the left (or right) by gaps and intervals of $C$ , and if each gap of $C$ has an interval adjacent to its right (or left). See [link] .

## Sums of mid- $\alpha$ Cantor sets

The problem tackled in this study revolves around characterizing the topological properties of the sum of two mid- $\alpha$ Cantor sets $C\left(\lambda \right)$ and $C\left(\gamma \right)$ , given by

$C\left(\lambda \right)+C\left(\gamma \right)=\left\{x,+,y,\mid ,x,\in ,C,\left(\lambda \right),,,\phantom{\rule{3.33333pt}{0ex}},y,\in ,C,\left(\gamma \right)\right\}$

in terms of $\lambda$ and $\gamma$ .

It is known that this sum can be an interval, as in the case of $C\left(\frac{1}{3}\right)+C\left(\frac{1}{3}\right)=\left[0,,,2\right]$ . However, such a sum can result in another Cantor set, as with $C\left(\frac{1}{5}\right)+C\left(\frac{1}{5}\right)$ . The proofs of these facts are in "Known Results" .

When studying this sum, it is more convenient to characterize it in terms of $\lambda$ and ${\lambda }^{\theta }=\gamma$ with $\theta \ge 1$ as opposed to simply just $\lambda$ and $\gamma$ . This is due to a result from [link] discussed below.

## Hausdorff dimension

A useful way of characterizing these types of sum sets in terms of Hausdorff dimension . To define Hausdorff dimension, as done in [link] , we need first to define the Hausdorff $\alpha$ -measure . (Note that the $\alpha$ here is different from the $\alpha$ used to define the mid- $\alpha$ Cantor sets.)

Given a set $K\subseteq \mathbb{R}$ and a finite covering $\mathcal{U}={\left\{{U}_{i}\right\}}_{i\in I}$ of $K$ by open intervals, we define ${\ell }_{i}$ to be the length of ${U}_{i}$ , and then $\text{diam}\left(\mathcal{U}\right)$ to be the maximum of the ${\ell }_{i}$ . Then, the Hausdorff $\alpha$ -measure ${m}_{\alpha }\left(K\right)$ of $K$ is

${m}_{\alpha }\left(K\right)=\underset{\epsilon \to 0}{lim}\left(\underset{\begin{array}{c}\mathcal{U}\phantom{\rule{0.166667em}{0ex}}\text{covers}\phantom{\rule{0.166667em}{0ex}}K\\ \text{diam}\left(\mathcal{U}\right)<\epsilon \end{array}}{inf},\left(\sum _{i\in I},{\ell }_{i}^{\alpha }\right)\right).$

Then, there is a unique number $HD\left(K\right)$ such that for $\alpha , ${m}_{\alpha }\left(K\right)=\infty$ , and for $\alpha >HD\left(K\right)$ , ${m}_{\alpha }\left(K\right)=0$ . We call this number the Hausdorff dimension of $K$ .

From this definition, it is clear that any set with Hausdorff dimension less than 1 must have zero Lebesgue measure. Note that it is possible to have a Cantor set that has both Hausdorff dimension equal to 1 and Lebesgue measure zero. There is also another class of Cantor sets that have Hausdorff dimension 1 and positive Lebesgue measure.

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
are you nano engineer ?
s.
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
Tarell
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
Damian
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.
