Measure zero sets whose complex sum is non-measurable


Krzysztof Ciesielski,

5 pages; Real Anal. Exchange, to appear.

In this note we will show that for every positive natural number n there exists a subset S of [0,1] such that its n-th complex sum nS=S+...+S is a nowhere dense measure zero set, but its (n+1)-th complex sum nS+S is neither measurable nor it has the Baire property. In addition, the set S will be also a Hamel base, that is, a linear base of R over Q.
