[tex]f:C\rightarrow \{0,2\}^\mathbb{N}: 0.a_1a_2a_3...\rightarrow (a_1,a_2,a_3,...)[/tex]

with inverse

[tex]f^{-1}:\{0,2\}^\mathbb{N}\rightarrow C:(a_n)_n\rightarrow \sum_{k=1}^{+\infty} a_k 3^{-k}[/tex]

So more practically, given an element of the Cantor set ##C##, we can see this as a sequence of coin tosses by looking at the base-3 representation. The number ##0.0202020202...## is an element of the Cantor set and corresponds to the sequence ##HTHTHTHTHTHT....##.

They don't really have an interpretation.
