 OFFSET 0,2 COMMENTS Let 13 boxes be placed into a 5 X 5 square grid, arranged in the shape of a capital letter Pi (see illustration). Also let the initial side length of a box = 1/28. The side length of a box after n iterations will be 1/(4*A005050(n)) i.e., 1/28, 1/140, 1/700, 1/3500, ... The sides count (any lengths) is 12*A001019(n), i.e., 12, 108, 972, 8748, ... The Hausdorff dimension = log(13)/log(5) = 1.593692641167... or A154265. LINKS Table of n, a(n) for n=0..26.
