We consider the class of Cantor sets that are constructed from affine iterated function systems on the real line. These Cantor sets possess a cumulative distribution function (CDF), constructed from the invariant Borel probability measure associated with their iterated function systems. Under appropriate assumptions, we identify sampling schemes of such CDFs, meaning that the underlying Cantor set can be reconstructed from sufficiently many samples of its CDF. To this end, we prove that two Cantor sets have almost-nowhere intersection with respect to their corresponding invariant measures.

Joint work with Allison Byars (University of Wisconsin), Evan Camrud (Iowa State University), Steven Nathan Harding (Milwaukee School of Engineering), Sarah McCarty (Iowa State University) and Keith Sullivan (Concordia College).
