like a cloth folded, and hidden in the folds of time.

Furthermore, methods used in classification of unital simple AH-algebras and unital simple dimension drop algebras dealt with maps from dimension drop algebras to dimension drop algebras and maps between some homogeneous C ∗ -algebras.
Inductive Limits of Subhomogeneous $C^*$-algebras with Hausdorff Spectrum
Thus, the set Reg(Xi ) is a definably connected R-manifold of even R-dimension 2k , and we have dimR (Yi ) 6 2k − 2 (we let dimR (Yi ) denote the o-minimal dimension of Yi with respect to R, which is twice the algebraic dimension of Yi ).
On central extensions and definably compact groups in o-minimal structures
For a non-differentiable function f , ordinary definition of dimension, which is always a nonnegative integer, is inadequate to measure the dimensionality of its image or graph. A more appropriate definition of dimension is called fractal of Hausdorff dimension which can be any non-negative real number.

Moreover, since a compact metric space of dimension at most 2 is a sequential pro jective limit of finite CW-complexes of dimension at most 2 (see [4, Theorem 1.13.5]), we are reduced to proving (21) for the case that A = C (X ) ⊗ K, where X is a finite CW-complex of dimension at most 2.
