RegionDimension

RegionDimension[reg]
gives the geometric dimension of the region reg.

DetailsDetails

  • The geometric dimension d of reg is the largest d such that a d-dimensional ball can be completely embedded in the region.
  • Typical names for regions of different dimensions include:
  • 0points
    1lines, curves, arcs, segments, intervals
    2planes, surfaces
    3solids, volumes
