VARIATIONS AROUND A PROBLEM OF MAHLER AND MENDÈS FRANCE

  • YANN BUGEAUD (a1)
Abstract
Abstract

We discuss the following general question and some of its extensions. Let (εk)k≥1 be a sequence with values in {0,1}, which is not ultimately periodic. Define ξ:=∑ k≥1εk/2k and ξ′:=∑ k≥1εk/3k. Let 𝒫 be a property valid for almost all real numbers. Is it true that at least one among ξ and ξ′ satisfies 𝒫?
