  • Title :   A singular function containing all Lagrange numbers less than three
  • Abstract :   Given a real number $\alpha$, the Lagrange number of $\alpha$ is the supremum of all real numbers $L>0$ for which the inequality $|\alpha -p/q|<(L q^2)^{-1}$ holds for infinitely many rational numbers $p/q$. If Lagrange numbers are less than $3$, then they characterize some badly approximable real numbers in the context of Diophantine approximations. Moreover, they can be arranged as a set $\{l_{p/q}: p/q\in \mathbb{Q}\cap [0,1] \}$ using the Farey index. The present talk considers a singular function devised from Sturmian words. After investigating its regularity and singularity, we demonstrate that this function contains all information on Lagrange numbers less than $3$.
