Singular Probability Distributions and Fractal Properties of Sets of Real Numbers Defined by the Asymptotic Frequencies of Their s-Adic Digits
Dedicated to V. S. Korolyuk on occasion of his 80-th birthday
Properties of the set $T_s$ of "particularly nonnormal numbers" of the unit interval are studied in details ($T_s$ consists of real numbers $x$, some of whose $s$-adic digits have the asymptotic frequencies in the nonterminating $s$-adic expansion of $x$, and some do not). It is proven that the set $T_s$ is residual in the topological sense (i.e., it is of the first Baire category) and it is generic in the sense of fractal geometry ( $T_s$ is a superfractal set, i.e., its Hausdorff - Besicovitch dimension is equal to 1). A topological and fractal classification of sets of real numbers via analysis of asymptotic frequencies of digits in their $s$-adic expansions is presented.
