For self-similar fractals made of N copies, each scaled by the same factor r, the
similarity dimension d_{s} is given by | |||

d_{s} = Log(N)/Log(1/r). | |||

Now consider the fractal shown on the left. On the right we see it is made of three
pieces scaled by | |||

Because different r values are involved, the similarity dimension formula cannot be applied. What can we do? | |||

Return to the Moran equation.
