## Local dimension of self similar measures

Frank Adams 1,

Let \(S_0, S_1 \dots, S_k\) be a finite set of linear contractions, and \(p_0, p_1, \dots, p_k > 0\) be probabilites with \(p_0 + p_1 + \dots + p_k = 1\). There exists a unique self-similar measure \(\mu\) such that

\(\begin{equation*}

\mu= p_0 \mu \circ S_{0}^{-1} + \dots +

+ p_k \mu \circ S_{k}^{-1}.

\end{equation*}\)

We call such a \(\mu\) a self-similar measure. We define the local dimension of \(\mu\) at \(x\) as

\(\begin{equation*}

\dim_{\mathrm{loc}}\mu_\beta (x)=\lim_{r\rightarrow 0^{+}}\frac{\log \mu_\beta

([x-r,x+r])}{\log r}.

\end{equation*}\)

In this talk we will discuss how one can compute the set of all possible local dimensions for a self-similar measure of finite type.
