## Abstract

Let $\nu_\lambda^p$ be the distribution of the random series $\sum_{n=1}^\infty i_n \lambda^n$, where $i_n$ is a sequence of i.i.d. random variables taking the values 0,1 with probabilities $p,1-p$. These measures are the well-known (biased) Bernoulli convolutions. In this paper we study the multifractal spectrum of $\nu_\lambda^p$ for typical $\lambda$. Namely, we investigate the size of the sets \[ \Delta_{\lambda,p}(\alpha) = \left\{x\in\R: \lim_{r\searrow 0} \frac{\log \nu_\lambda^p(B(x,r))}{\log r} =\alpha\right\}. \] Our main results highlight the fact that for almost all, and in some cases all, $\lambda$ in an appropriate range, $\Delta_{\lambda,p}(\alpha)$ is nonempty and, moreover, has positive Hausdorff dimension, for many values of $\alpha$. This happens even in parameter regions for which $\nu_\lambda^p$ is typically absolutely continuous.
