# Sets of Constant Irrationality Measure

Let $\mu (r)>2$ be the irrationality measure of a transcendental number $r$, and consider the following set of points $P \in\mathbb{R}$:

$P=\{r\in \mathbb{R}: \mu(r)=Constant\}$

Is this set a fractal, and If so, then what is it's dimension?

The known upper bound of e.g. $\mu (\zeta (3))$ is $5.513891$, but it might be improved. So what does it means $\mu (r)=$ Constant $=5.513891$ in $P$? – Américo Tavares Nov 17 '10 at 23:15
I would say that we should distinguish between two cases: $\mu(r)=\mu (\zeta (3))$ and $\mu(r)=5.513891$. I'm slightly confused by this comment, because if $\mu (\zeta (3))$ is an irrational number, then it's impossible to write it in decimal notation in any case. – Matt Calhoun Nov 18 '10 at 15:00
Correction: ... what does it mean ... . $\zeta(3)$ is indeed an irrational number with an irrational measure less or equal to $5.513891...$. And if $\zeta(3)$ is not a transcendental number? (Though I believe one day someone will prove it is). – Américo Tavares Nov 18 '10 at 15:25
If $\zeta (3)$ is algebraic, then $\mu(\zeta(3))=2$. – Matt Calhoun Nov 18 '10 at 18:12
Yes, I know. But what does the condition $\mu(r)=$ Constant mean, when applied to $r=\zeta(3)$? What is the value of the Constant that would make $r=\zeta(3)$ be in $P$? – Américo Tavares Nov 18 '10 at 20:31
