Abstract

Let $\unicode[STIX]{x1D6F9}:[1,\infty )\rightarrow \mathbb{R}_{+}$ be a non-decreasing function, $a_{n}(x)$ the $n$ th partial quotient of $x$ and $q_{n}(x)$ the denominator of the $n$ th convergent. The set of $\unicode[STIX]{x1D6F9}$ -Dirichlet non-improvable numbers,

$$\begin{eqnarray}G(\unicode[STIX]{x1D6F9}):=\{x\in [0,1):a_{n}(x)a_{n+1}(x)>\unicode[STIX]{x1D6F9}(q_{n}(x))\text{ for infinitely many }n\in \mathbb{N}\},\end{eqnarray}$$
is related with the classical set of $1/q^{2}\unicode[STIX]{x1D6F9}(q)$ -approximable numbers ${\mathcal{K}}(\unicode[STIX]{x1D6F9})$ in the sense that ${\mathcal{K}}(3\unicode[STIX]{x1D6F9})\subset G(\unicode[STIX]{x1D6F9})$ . Both of these sets enjoy the same $s$ -dimensional Hausdorff measure criterion for $s\in (0,1)$ . We prove that the set $G(\unicode[STIX]{x1D6F9})\setminus {\mathcal{K}}(3\unicode[STIX]{x1D6F9})$ is uncountable by proving that its Hausdorff dimension is the same as that for the sets ${\mathcal{K}}(\unicode[STIX]{x1D6F9})$ and $G(\unicode[STIX]{x1D6F9})$ . This gives an affirmative answer to a question raised by Hussain et al [Hausdorff measure of sets of Dirichlet non-improvable numbers. Mathematika 64(2) (2018), 502–518].
