How smooth is almost every function in a Sobolev space?Aurélia Fraysse and Stéphane Jaffard (1) Université Paris Est, Créteil, France

We show that almost every function (in the sense of prevalence) in a Sobolev space is multifractal: Its regularity changes from point to point; the sets of points with a given Hölder regularity are fractal sets, and we determine their Hausdorff dimension.
Keywords: Sobolev spaces, Besov spaces, prevalence, Haar-null sets, multifractal functions, Hölder regularity, Hausdorff dimension, wavelet bases
