Abstract: For a fixed $k\ge 1$ let $C_1,\dots ,C_k$ be generalized Cantor sets. We examine various criteria under which $C_1+\dots + C_k$ contains an interval. When these criteria do not hold, we give a lower bound for the Hausdorff dimension of $C_1+\dots +C_k$. Our work will involve the development of two different types of thickness measures.
