    We consider several dierent models for generating random fractals including random self-similar sets, random self-affine carpets, and Mandelbrot percolation. In each setting we compute either the almost sure or the Baire ...
  • The Assouad dimension of self-affine carpets with no grid structure 

    Fraser, Jonathan MacDonald; Jordan, Thomas (2016-12-21) - Journal article
    Previous study of the Assouad dimension of planar self-affine sets has relied heavily on the underlying IFS having a `grid structure', thus allowing for the use of approximate squares. We study the Assouad dimension of a ...
  • The Assouad dimensions of projections of planar sets 

    Fraser, Jonathan M.; Orponen, Tuomas (2017-02) - Journal article
    We consider the Assouad dimensions of orthogonal projections of planar sets onto lines. Our investigation covers both general and self-similar sets. For general sets, the main result is the following: if a set in the plane ...
  • Assouad type dimensions and homogeneity of fractals 

    Fraser, Jonathan M. (2014-12) - Journal article
    We investigate several aspects of the Assouad dimension and the lower dimension, which together form a natural 'dimension pair'. In particular, we compute these dimensions for certain classes of self-affine sets and ...
  • Assurance of corporate stand-alone reporting : evidence from the UK 

    Al-Hamadeen, Radhi Mousa (University of St Andrews, 2007-11-09) - Thesis
    Since the early 1990’s the number of corporate stand-alone reports produced by various organisations worldwide has increased considerably (Kolk, 2004; Owen, 2006). It is argued that introducing an assurance statement with ...
