Dimension,
what does this mean?!
and Has any one heared about 2-d matter?

(1) See Mariko's post, especially 1a and 3, which are the contexts in which physicists use the term dimension.shekoofeh said:Dimension,

You might also want to look at the following old thread in the math forumIn mathematics, no definition of dimension adequately captures the concept in all situations where we would like to make use of it. Consequently, mathematicians have devised numerous definitions of dimension for different types of spaces. All, however, are ultimately based on the concept of the dimension of Euclidean n-space E n. The point E 0 is 0-dimensional. The line E 1 is 1-dimensional. The plane E 2 is 2-dimensional. And in general E n is n-dimensional.
In the rest of this article we examine some of the more important mathematical definitions of dimension.
