Beyond Furstenberg's intersection conjecture


Hillel Furstenberg conjectured in the 1960s that the intersections of closed ×2 and ×3-invariant Cantor sets have “small” Hausdorff dimension. This conjecture was proved independently by Meng Wu and by myself; recently, Tim Austin found a simple proof. I will present some generalizations of the intersection conjecture and other related results.
