Additional Information
The Sierpinski carpet and Menger sponge are fractals that are 2- and 3-dimensional versions of the Cantor set. Like the Cantor set, each is formed by starting with a shape (a square for the carpet, a cube for the sponge) and then recursively removing from it certain subsets. Unlike the Cantor set, given any two points s and f in the carpet or sponge, there is a path from s to f that stays in the carpet or sponge.
