We begin with a brief treatment of Hausdorff measure and Hausdorff dimension. We then explain some of the principal results in Diophantine approximation and the Hausdorff dimension of related sets, originating in the pioneering work of Vojtech Jarnik. We conclude with some applications of these results to the metrical structure of exceptional sets associated with some famous problems. It is not intended that all the recent developments be covered but they can be found in the references cited. 
Flows on S-arithmetic homogeneous spaces and applications to metric Diophantine approximation
The main goal of this work is to establish quantitative nondivergence estimates for flows on homogeneous spaces of products of real and p-adic Lie groups. These results have applications both toExpand
A Contribution to Metric Diophantine Approximation: the Lebesgue and Hausdorff Theories
This thesis is concerned with the theory of Diophantine approximation from the point of view of measure theory. After the prolegomena which conclude with a number of conjectures set to understandExpand
Zero–infinity laws in Diophantine approximation
It is shown that for any translation invariant outer measure M, the M-measure of the intersection of any subset of R n that is invari- ant under rational translations and which does not have fullExpand
Diophantine approximation and badly approximable sets
Let (X,d) be a metric space and (Ω,d) a compact subspace of X which supports a non-atomic finite measure m. We consider ‘natural’ classes of badly approximable subsets of Ω. Loosely speaking, theseExpand

Abstract Analogues of the classical theorems of Khintchine, Jarník and Jarník-Besicovitch in the metrical theory of Diophantine approximation are established for quaternions by applying results onExpand
Generalized external cone condition for domains in Riemannian manifolds
The aim of this note is to present an alternative proof for an already known result relative to the solvability of the Dirichlet problem in Riemannian manifolds (see remark 0.1). In particular, weExpand
Fractality, Self-Similarity and Complex Dimensions
We present an overview of a theory of complex dimensions of self-similar fractal strings, and compare this theory to the theory of varieties over a finite field from the geometric and the dynamicalExpand

It is shown that for any translation invariant outer measure M, the M-measure of any subset of R n that is invariant under rational translations cannot be positive and finite. Analogues for p-adicExpand
Good’s theorem for Hurwitz continued fractions
Good's Theorem for regular continued fraction states that the set of real numbers $[a_0;a_1,a_2,\ldots]$ such that $\displaystyle\lim_{n\to\infty} a_n=\infty$ has Hausdorff dimension $\tfrac{1}{2}$.Expand
Large sieve with sparse sets of moduli for $\mathbb{Z}[i]$
We establish a general large sieve inequality with sparse sets $\mathcal{S}$ of moduli in the Gaussian integers which are in a sense well-distributed in arithmetic progressions. This extends earlierExpand
