  Hausdorff dimension - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Intuitively, the dimension of a mathematical structure (for example, a subset of Euclidean space) is the number of independent parameters needed to describe a point in the structure.
For example box-counting dimension, generalises the idea of counting the squares of graph paper in which a point of X can be found, as the size of the squares is made smaller and smaller.
Fractals often are spaces whose Hausdorff dimension strictly exceeds the topological dimension.

Like in the case of the topological dimension, if a set A is contained in a set B then a theorem says that Hausdorff dimension of A is less or equal to that of B. Thus every set containing a square (or, what is equivalent, a disk) has Hausdorff dimension greater or equal to 2.

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.

 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).
