The construction process of the Sierpinski Carpet [Le processus de construction du tapis de Sierpinski].

Definition of the Sierpinski carpet (related to the Cantor triadic set): A square is cut into 3x3=9 identical smaller squares. Then the central subsquare -grey- is removed. At last this process is iterated recursively with the 9-1=8 remaining subsquares. The fractal dimension of the Sierpinski carpet is equal to:
                    -------- = 1.892789260714372
