Dimension of fat Sierpiński gaskets.

Thomas Jordan

Full-text: Open access


In this paper we continue the work started by Broomhead, Montaldi and Sidorov investigating the Hausdorff dimension of fat Sierpiński gaskets. We obtain generic results where the contraction rate $\lambda$ is in a certain region.
