D-dimensional vs. n-dimensional ?

  1. d-dimensional vs. n-dimensional ??

    Is there any difference to the meaning of these terms? I'm keep running across both of them.

    Re: d-dimensional vs. n-dimensional ??

    No difference at all. One is using "d" because that is the first letter of "dimension", the other "n" because (normal) dimensions are positive integers and "n" is standard usage for positive integers.
