The Bernoulli convolution with parameter lambda is the law of the random variable: Sum X_i lambda^i, where X_i are independent unbiased +1/-1 valued random variables. If lambda lambda > 1/2, the question whether the Bernoulli convolution is singular or a.c. is a very interesting open problem. Recent papers of Hochman and Shmerkin prove that the set of lambda’s such that the measure is singular is of Hausdorff dimension 0. I will discuss the problem for parameters lambda that are algebraic. Work in progress, joint with Emmanuel Breuillard.
