Abstract
Denote by $\mu_a$ the distribution of the random sum $ \; \; (1a) \sum_{j=0}^\infty \omega_j a^j$, where $\mathbf{P}(\omega_j=0)=\mathbf{P}(\omega_j=1)=1/2$ and all the choices are independent. For $0<a<1/2$, the measure $\mu_a$ is supported on $C_a$, the central Cantor set obtained by starting with the closed united interval, removing an open central interval of length $(12a)$, and iterating this process inductively on each of the remaining intervals. We investigate the convolutions $\mu_a * (\mu_b \circ S_\lambda^{1})$, where $S_\lambda(x)=\lambda x$ is a rescaling map. We prove that if the ratio $\log b/\log a$ is irrational and $\lambda\neq 0$, then \[ D(\mu_a *(\mu_b\circ S_\lambda^{1})) = \min(\dim_H(C_a)+\dim_H(C_b),1), \] where $D$ denotes any of correlation, Hausdorff or packing dimension of a measure. We also show that, perhaps surprisingly, for uncountably many values of $\lambda$ the convolution $\mu_{1/4} *(\mu_{1/3}\circ S_\lambda^{1})$ is a singular measure, although $\dim_H(C_{1/4})+\dim_H(C_{1/3})>1$ and $\log (1/3) /\log (1/4)$ is irrational.
