fractal dimensionality

[′frak·təl di‚men·shə′nal·əd·ē]
(mathematics)
A number D associated with a fractal which satisfies the equation N = b D , where b is the factor by which the length scale changes under a magnification in each step of a recursive procedure defining the object, and N is the factor by which the number of basic units increases in each such step. Also known as Mandelbrot dimensionality.
