On the conformal dimensions of quasiconvex post-critically finite self similar sets
Abstract: The conformal dimension of a metric space is the infimum of the Hausdorff dimensions of all quasisymmetrically equivalent
metrics on the space. We show that certain classical self-similar
fractal subsets of Euclidean space are not minimal for conformal
dimension by constructing explicit metrics in the quasisymmetry
class of the Euclidean metric with reduced Hausdorff dimension.
