Correlation dimension. Dimension is typically termed "D". There can be
several kinds of dimension. The question which Ken answered with

from a time series.

So would I. However, the question was about calculating cD from an
arbitrary time series; strictly a matter of nonlinear statistics. The
topology of part of the brain, which was the essence of Ken's "answer"
is about as relevant to this question as the presence of hematite on
Mars is to the structure of Shakespear's sonnets. Even of the time
series was one of neuro-electric activity, his answer is irrelevant.
Mathematics does not change with the subject it is being applied to.
