The Assouad dimension of randomly generated fractals
MetadataShow full item record
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 typical Assouad dimension and consider some illustrative examples. Our results reveal a phenomenon common to each of our models: the Assouad dimension of a randomly generated fractal is generically as big as possible and does not depend on the measure theoretic or topological structure of the sample space. This is in stark contrast to the other commonly studied notions of dimension like the Hausdor or packing dimension.
