Abstract

Peres and Solomyak asked the question: Do there exist self-similar sets with positive Lebesgue measure and empty interior? This question was answered in the affirmative by Csörnyei et al. They gave a parameterised family of iterated function systems for which almost all of the corresponding self-similar sets satisfied the required properties. They do not however provide an explicit example. Motivated by a desire to construct an explicit example, we in this paper provide an explicit construction of an infinitely generated self-similar set with positive Lebesgue measure and empty interior.
