Let x = [0; a1, a2, …] be the regular continued fraction expansion of an irrational number x ∈ [0, 1]. For the derivative of the Minkowski function ?(x) we prove that ?′(x) = +∞, provided that $ \mathop {{\lim \sup }}\limits_{t \to \infty } \frac{{{a_1} + \cdots + {a_t}}}{t} < {\kappa_1} = \frac{{2\log {\lambda_1}}}{{\log 2}} = {1.388^{+} } $, and ?′(x) = 0, provided that $ \mathop {{\lim \inf }}\limits_{t \to \infty } \frac{{{a_1} + \cdots + {a_t}}}{t} > {\kappa_2} = \frac{{4{L_5} - 5{L_4…

For the Minkowski question mark function ?(x) we consider derivative of the function fn(x) = ?(?(...? } {{ } n times (x))). Apart from obvious cases (rational numbers for example) it is non-trivial
V Tree -- Continued Fraction Expansion, Stern-Brocot Tree, Minkowski's $?(x)$ Function In Binary: Exponentially Faster
The Stern-Brocot tree and Minkowki's question mark function $?(x)$ (or Conway's box function) are related to the continued fraction expansion of numbers from Q with unary encoding of the partial
On the Minkowski Measure
The Minkowski Question Mark function relates the continued-fraction representation of the real numbers, to their binary expansion. This function is peculiar in many ways; one is that its derivative
The Minkowski question mark function: explicit series for the dyadic period function and moments
It is proved that the dyadic period function G(z) is a sum of infinite series of rational functions with rational coefficients, including the question mark function F(x) and the generating function of moments of F_p(x).
Minkowski question mark function and its generalizations, associated with p-continued fractions: fractals, explicit series for the dyadic period function and moments
Previously, several natural integral transforms of Minkowski question mark function F (x) were introduced by the author. Each of them is uniquely characterized by certain regularity conditions and
Generating and zeta functions, structure, spectral and analytic properties of the moments of the Minkowski question mark function
In this paper we are interested in moments of Minkowski question mark function ?(x). It appears that, to certain extent, the results are analogous to the results obtained for objects associated with
Diophantine properties of fixed points of Minkowski question mark function
We consider irrational fixed points of the Minkowski question mark function $? (x)$, that is irrational solutions of the equation $? (x)=x$. It is easy to see that there exist at least two such
Derivatives of slippery Devil's staircases
In this paper we first give a survey of known results on the derivative of slippery Devil's staircase functions, that is, functions that are singular with respect to the Lebesgue measure and strictly


The Derivative of Minkowski's ?(x) Function
Abstract Minkowski's ?( x ) function can be seen as the confrontation of two number systems: regular continued fractions and the alternated dyadic system. This way of looking at it enables us to
A refinement of the rule of comparing continuants
We prove a theorem, which allow us to compare in some cases the values of continuants of denominators of finite continued fractions without their calculation. For natural numbers a { , α2 , . . . ,
Given a non-empty finite subset A of the natural numbers, let EA denote the set of irrationals x∈[0,1] whose continued fraction digits lie in A. In general, EA is a Cantor set whose Hausdorff
A new light on Minkowski's? $(x)$ function
The well--known Minkowski's? $(x)$ function is presented as the asymptotic distribution function of an enumeration of the rationals in (0,1] based on their continued fraction representation. Besides,
On some singular monotonic functions which are strictly increasing
almost everywhere, may be constant in every interval contiguous to a perfect set of measure zero: it is usually said, in this case, that f(x) is of the Cantor type. There are, however, monotonic
