Mahler's question for intrinsic Diophantine approximation on triadic Cantor set: the divergence theory

  title={Mahler's question for intrinsic Diophantine approximation on triadic Cantor set: the divergence theory},
  author={Bo Tan and Bao-Wei Wang and Jun Wu},
In this paper, we consider the intrinsic Diophantine approximation on the triadic Cantor set K, i.e. approximating the points in K by rational numbers inside K, a question posed by K. Mahler. By using another height function of a rational number in K, i.e. the denominator obtained from its periodic 3-adic expansion, a complete metric theory for this variant intrinsic Diophantine approximation is presented which yields the divergence theory of Mahler’s original question.

Intrinsic Diophantine Approximation for overlapping iterated function systems
In this paper we study a family of limsup sets that are defined using iterated function systems. Our main result is an analogue of Khintchine’s theorem for these sets. We then apply this result to


Intrinsic approximation on Cantor-like sets, a problem of Mahler
AbstractIn 1984, Kurt Mahler posed the following fundamental question: Howwell can irrationals in the Cantor set be approximated by rationals in theCantor set? Towards development of such a theory,
Diophantine approximation onplanar curves andthe distribution of rational points
Let C be a nondegenerate planar curve and for a real, positive decreasing function ψ let C(ψ) denote the set of simultaneously ψ-approximable points lying on C. We show that C is of Khintchine type
Flows on homogeneous spaces and Diophantine approximation on manifolds
We present a new approach to metric Diophantine approximation on manifolds based on the correspondence between approximation properties of numbers and orbit properties of certain flows on homogeneous
Uniformly de Bruijn Sequences and Symbolic Diophantine Approximation on Fractals
Intrinsic Diophantine approximation on fractals, such as the Cantor ternary set, was undoubtedly motivated by questions asked by K. Mahler (1984). One of the main goals of this paper is to develop
The Distribution of Rational Numbers on Cantor’s Middle Thirds Set
Abstract We give a heuristic argument predicting that the number N∗(T) of rationals p/q on Cantor’s middle thirds set C such that gcd(p, q)=1 and q ≤ T, has asymptotic growth O(Td+ε), for d = dim C.
Rational points near manifolds and metric Diophantine approximation
This work is motivated by problems on simultaneous Diophantine approximation on manifolds, namely, establishing Khintchine and Jarnik type theorems for submanifolds of R^n. These problems have
Dyadic Approximation in the Middle-Third Cantor Set
In this paper, we study the metric theory of dyadic approximation in the middle-third Cantor set. This theory complements earlier work of Levesley, Salp, and Velani (2007), who investigated the
Diophantine Properties of Measures and Homogeneous Dynamics
This is a survey of the so-called “quantitative nondivergence” approach to metric Diophantine approximation developed approximately 10 years ago in my collaboration with Margulis. The goal of this
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, these
Intrinsic approximation for fractals defined by rational iterated function systems: Mahler's research suggestion
Following K. Mahler's suggestion for further research on intrinsic approxi- mation on the Cantor ternary set, we obtain a Dirichlet type theorem for the limit sets of rational iterated function
