Rademacher's theorem states that Lipschitz mappings between Euclidean spaces are differentiable almost everywhere with respect to the Lebesgue measure. So for any such Lipschitz mapping, the set of its non-differentiability points has Lebesgue measure zero. We will investigate an even smaller class of sets, namely those in which not only one but many Lipschitz mappings fail to find a point of differentiability. Conversely, we also address the question of what type of "largeness" of a set is required in order to guarantee that most Lipschitz functions have points of differentiability inside of it. We will discuss differentiability and non-differentiability sets of the typical Lipschitz mapping, where typical is understood in the sense of the Baire Category theorem. A geometric characterisation of these sets inside the class of analytic sets will be presented. This is based on joint work with Olga Maleva (Birmingham).
