Reference Entry
Definition of the term "Menger sponge," is presented. According to this concept, a fractal object is formed by starting with a cube, dividing it into 27 equal smaller cubes and removing the centre cube and the centre cubes of each face. This process is repeated successively and the limiting object is the Menger sponge.
