  Dimension - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In mathematics, dimensions are the parameters required to describe the position and relevant characteristics of any object within a conceptual space —where the dimensions of a space are the total number of different parameters used for all possible objects considered in the model.
In the physical sciences and in engineering, the dimension of a physical quantity is the expression of the class of physical unit that such a quantity is measured against.
The inductive dimension of a topological space may refer to the small inductive dimension or the large inductive dimension, and is based on the analogy that n+1-dimensional balls have n dimensional boundaries, permitting an inductive definition based on the dimension of the boundaries of open sets.

 Dimension (vector space) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In mathematics, the dimension of a vector space V is the cardinality (i.e.
Some simple formulae relate the dimension of a vector space with the cardinality of the base field and the cardinality of the space itself.
The length of a module and the rank of an abelian group both have several properties similar to the dimension of vector spaces.

 [No title]   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Dimension (from Latin "measured out") is, in essence, the number of degrees of freedom available for movement in a space.
Time is frequently referred to as the "fourth dimension"; time is not the fourth dimension of space, but rather of spacetime.
The Krull dimension of a commutative ring is defined to be the maximal length of a strictly increasing chain of prime ideals in the ring.

 PlanetMath: dimension
The word dimension in mathematics has many definitions, but all of them are trying to quantify our intuition that, for example, a sheet of paper has somehow one less dimension than a stack of papers.
One common way to define dimension is through some notion of a number of independent quantities needed to describe an element of an object.
This is version 7 of dimension, born on 2003-10-18, modified 2004-03-29.

 Fractal Dimension
The dimension of the union of finitely many sets is the largest dimension of any one of them, so if we ``grow hair'' on a plane, the result is still a two-dimensional set.
Not surprisingly, the box dimensions of ordinary Euclidean objects such as points, curves, surfaces, and solids coincide with their topological dimensions of 0, 1, 2, and 3-- this is, of course, what we would want to happen, and follows from the discussion at the beginning of §5.1.
Thus, the embedding dimension of a plane is 2, the embedding dimension of a sphere is 3, and the embedding dimension of a klein bottle is 4, even though they all have (topological) dimension two.

 How many dimensions to our Universe?
Of course not the three dimensions that we are used to, but some new dimensions of such a microscopic size that we would not be aware of their existence, unless we probed microphysics.
Hence, a 5-dimensional field is identified in 4 dimensions to a tower of particles regularly spaced in mass-squared, the mass gap being given by the inverse of the compact dimension size.
It is well-known in 4 dimensions that this constant is nothing but the vacuum energy: this is the source of the notorious cosmological problem: this vacuum energy is expected to be of the order of the fundamental scales in the microscopic theory, and this exceeds the observational constraint by many orders of magnitude.

 Fractal Curves and Dimension
The topological dimension of a smooth curve is, as one would expect, one and that of a sphere is two which may seem very intuitive.
To understand the notion of the similarity dimension, first observe that, if the initial line segment was 1 unit in length, then the second stage curve that consists of four segments each one third of the initial line, is 4/3 units in length.
By one of Brouwer's theorems this function preserves the topological dimension of the segment (which is, of course 1).

 Imagining the Tenth Dimension - A Book by Rob Bryanton
As we’re now imagining the ninth dimension, the same rules would apply – if we were to be able to instantaneously jump from one eighth dimensional line to another, it would be because we were able to fold through the ninth dimension.
When we imagined the fourth dimension, it was as if we were treating the entirety of three-dimensional space in a particular state as a single point, and drawing a fourth-dimensional line to another point representing space as it is in a different state.
Then in the seventh dimension, we treated all of the possible timelines which could be generated from our big bang as if this were a single point, and imagined drawing a line to a point representing all of the possible timelines for a completely different universe.

 Elias Digests — dimension
All of these dimensions are, in a figurative manner of speaking, subdivisions of what you view as your officially accepted dimension.
As I have stated from the onset of this forum, this particular physical dimension is one of the most diverse and complex of all of the physical dimensions.
You manifest within this dimension of physical focus, but within this dimension of physical focus there are many other dimensions of time fragments, for all of the time frameworks are simultaneous in actuality, but you separate them into different dimensions of time.

 3.2 Topological Dimension
The dimension on any other space will be defined as one greater that the dimension of the object that could be used to completely separate any part of the first space from the rest.
The dimension of a space should be the maximum of its local dimensions where the local dimension is defined as one more than the dimension of the lowest dimensional object with the capacity to separate any neighborhood of the space into two parts.
In other words, an object with topological dimension one can be transformed into an object with topological dimension two through a procedure that should not allow for such an occurrence.

 USGS Minerals Information: Dimension Stone
Dimension stone can be defined as natural rock material quarried for the purpose of obtaining blocks or slabs that meet specifications as to size (width, length, and thickness) and shape.
Although a variety of igneous, metamorphic, and sedimentary rocks are used as dimension stone, the principal rock types are granite, limestone, marble, sandstone, and slate.
Other varieties of dimension stone that are normally considered to be special minor types include alabaster (massive gypsum), soapstone (massive talc), and various products fashioned from natural stone.
