Lecture 2: Sets of Measure Zero and the Converse to Rademacher's Theorem: Part 2
Peter Jones, Professor, Mathematics & Applied Math, Yale University,

Abstract: I will outline the proof that (in any dimension) a set measure zero has "Good Tangent Cones". The proof uses estimates from harmonic analysis, and does not use the combinatorial step used by Alberti, Csornyei, and Price mentioned in Lecture 1. I will also discuss the relations of these methods to some unsolved problems in combinatorics.
