Universal Singular Sets and Unrectifiability

The geometry of universal singular sets has recently been studied by M.~Cs\"ornyei et al.~[Arch.~Ration.~Mech.~Anal. 190 (2008)(3), 371–424]. In particular they proved that given a purely unrectifiable compact set $S \subseteq \mathbb{R}^2$, one can construct a $C^{\infty}$-Lagrangian with a given superlinearity such that the universal singular set of $L$ contains $S$. We show the natural generalization: That given an $F_{\sigma}$ purely unrectifiable subset of the plane, one can construct a $C^{\infty}$-Lagrangian, of arbitrary superlinearity, with universal singular set covering this subset.

Keywords: Partial regularity, universal singular set, purely unrectifiable set
