# Measure between the counting measure and the Lebegue measure

There are subsets of the real line that has infinite counting measure, but Lebegue measure 0, so the Lebegue measure is used for measuring larger sets than the counting measure. My question is: Is there a translation invariant measure m such that for some sets with Lebegue measure 0 the m-measure is infinite and for some sets with infinite counting measure, the m-measure is 0?

I have found one example: m(A)=0 if A is countable, and m(A)=infinite otherwise. So I will require that the measure can take the value 1.

If such a measure exist, can we find a measure between this and the counting measure? and between this and the Lebegue measure? and so on.

• the conditions require that there exists a set with lebesgue measure 0 but infinite measure according to this measure. Are you sure this holds for Hausdorff measure (with dimension in $(0,1)$)? – Matus Telgarsky Jan 13 '10 at 9:41
I believe what you are looking for is the $\alpha$-dimensional Hausdorff measure for some $0 < \alpha < 1$.
