Order Dimension - K-dimension and 2-dimension

K-dimension and 2-dimension

A generalization of dimension is the notion of k-dimension (written ) which is the minimal number of chains of length at most k in whose product the partial order can be embedded. In particular, the 2-dimension of an order can be seen as the size of the smallest set such that the order embeds in the containment order on this set.
