Given two Cantor setsX andY in [0, 1), invariant under the mapxb x mod 1, the Hausdorff dimension of (X+t)∩Y is constant almost everywhere. WhenX,Y are defined by admissible digits in baseb, and more generally by sofic systems, we compute this dimension in terms of the largest Lyapunov exponent of a random product of matrices. The results are extended to higher dimensions and multiple intersections.
