Ok. So I think I fixed my problem from yesterday and I think I got something that I want and it's better than what I had. I just need to go over it again to make sure I didn't make any other mistakes and then check up on the second part of it, which I think is right though and then type it all up on Tex. I'm pretty happy with what I have right now though. It's still taking a while typing it all up on Tex, since I have to rephrase it into something comprehensible and put it in proof-format.
Also, I got the email confirmation from the Charles Center today, so all is well.

Yesterday, I talked with Prof Lutzer about certain fractals lying in infinite dimensional space that I had been considering and attempting to compute the dimension of. Some of them are kind of interesting, but today, I realized that I made a big mistake with one of them and I tried fixing it today but haven't gotten too far. Prof Lutzer and I talked about grids and infinite products and I don't think we were really on the same page most of the time, but I am grateful that he met with me.

Right now, I'm trying to type some of my problems up on TeX so that I can send them to Prof Day, but in doing so, I'm noticing some possible problems. Hopefully I can work some of them out and redo what I thought I did earlier with my first fractal and maybe my second one was already done correctly but I want to make sure. So, it's taking some time.

I haven't done anything with local box-counting dimension yet. I think it would probably be a good idea to prove that the supremum of the set of local dimensions around x for all x in X is the dimension of X (if it's true, which I think it is).

So tomorrow, I'm going back to fix what I messed up the first time and trying to type things up on Tex. Also, I need to visit the Charles Center to make sure they got my honors request sheet, b/c they never sent me the confirm email.
