Fractal Boundary

  1. Dec 18, 2014 #1
    For my work, I need to check my calculations with an example of a fractal object. I searched on the internet, there are some examples of fractals with their hausdorff dimensions, but no boundary terms related.
    Also found some 1-d examples, but I need d>3 dimensional objects since my calculations are for BEC.

    I need a fractal object that its boundary term is known in terms of the volume and the hausdorff dimension.
    For example, a regular box with lenght L in d-dim, the volume as Ld and the boundary term kL^d-1 (k is a const.)
    I need such an example for a fractal object or (I don't know if there are any)a regular object with fractal boundary.

    Maybe I couldn't express very good, but is there any book, paper, method you can recommend about this subject?
    thanks in advance.

    They can be, yes, but I also need to know their boundary term in terms of volume element. Is there a rule to generalise any kind of fractal object to d-dimension? Because I may try to apply, I remember I found a fractal with boundary term with dimension less than 3.
    thank you very much.

    It's not hard to compute the fractal dimension of the boundaries of the d-dimensional generalisations of these. Have a go.

    okay, I am thinking on it. thank you.
