Review: "For the Second Edition of this textbook, author Gerald Edgar has made numerous additions and changes, in an attempt to provide a clearer and more focused exposition. The most important addition is an increased emphasis on the packing measure, so that now it is often treated on a par with the Hausdorff measure. The topological dimensions were rearranged for Chapter 3, so that the covering dimension is the major one, and the inductive dimensions are the variants. A "reduced cover class" notion was introduced to help in proofs for Method I or Method II measures. Research results since 1990 that affect these elementary topics have been taken into account. Some examples have been added, including Barnsley leaf and Julia set, and most of the figures have been re-drawn."--Jacket.
