### how slow can the dimension of a product set grow?

Let us define the following "dimension" of a Borel subet $B \subset \mathbb{R}^k$:
$\dim(B) = \min\{n \in \mathbb{N}: \exists K \subset \mathbb{R}^n, ~{\rm s.t.} ~ B \sim K\}$,
where $\sim$ denotes ...

### Different definitions of the dimension of an algebra

I know of three ways to define the dimension of a finitely-generated commutative algebra A over a field F:
The Gelfand-Kirillov (GK) dimension, based on the growth of the Hilbert function.
The Krull ...
