Partially I the reader is brought to the tools of measuring the fractal size of abnormal geometric buildings. half II demonstrates very important sleek equipment for the statistical research of random shapes. The statistical concept of aspect fields, with and with out marks, is brought partly III. all the 3 sections concentrates at the mathematical rules, instead of distinctive proofs, and will be learn independently.

This implies there are E > 0 and N 2 1 such that n,, - W, = A. Thus We now define a new sequence of open symmetric neighborhoods of A by vo = wo, vn = Wl+(*-l)N, Obviously, n 2 1. V, = A. 11 we must prove that V,+l o Vn+l o V,+l for n 2 0. c V, It is clear that V1 o V1 o V1 c VOand by the choice of E and N , V2 o Vz o VZ C V1. Let k 2 2 and take (z,y) E vk+1Ovk+1Ovk+1. Then we prove that (z,y)E v k . Let z , w E X be points such that (z,w), (w,z),(z,y) E Vk+1. If ( p , q ) is any of these three points, then we have from which d(fi(z),fi(y)) < e, lil < 1 + (k - l)N.

Here d(A,B) is defined by d ( A , B )= inf{d(a,b) : a E A,b E B}. To show (4) let 1 > 0. For 1 5 i 5 m there is 0 < ~i < X such that if d(f(z),f(z)) < ~i (f(z), f(z) E f(cl(Ui))) then d(z,z ) < 7. This follows from the fact that f:cl(Ui) --f f(cl(Ui)) is injective. Put E = min{si : 1 5 i 5 m } . If diam(D) < E , then we have diam(Di) < 1 for 1 5 i 5 k. e. f is k-to-one. - . (n;=, u,"==, In the remainder of this section we describe well known theorems that will be used in the sequel. Let X be a topological space.

If this is false, for any n > 0 there exists a subset A, such that B for all B E a. diam(A,) = sup{d(a,b) : a , b E A,} 5 l / n and A, Take x , E A,, for n 2 1. Since X is compact, there is a subsequence {x,,} such that x,, 4 x as i -+ 00. Then x E B for some B E a. Since X \ B is compact, we have a = d ( x , X \ B ) = inf{d(x,b) : b E X \ B} > 0. Take sufficiently large ni satisfying ni > 2 / a and d(x,, ,x ) < a/2. Then, for y E Ani we have d ( y , ~ ) I d ( ~ i x n i ) + d ( z n i , l~/ n ) Ii + a / 2 < a < and thus y E B.
