Metrology of Space-Time Dimension

  • Karl Svozil
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 144)


The purpose of this short communication is twofold: (i) to support the reader with some basic knowledge about attempts to measure the Hausdorff dimension of space-time, and (ii) to cite some recent and useful literature for further in-depth study.


Hausdorff Dimension Dimensional Parameter Lamb Shift Geometric Measure Theory Fractal Scaling 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
