The fractional dimension of an ordered set was introduced in Brightwell and Scheinerman (1992). It is an interesting variant of the well studied order dimension and can be considered as a special case of the fractional covering number of hypergraphs. In this paper we provide a geometric interpretation of the fractional dimension and prove three theorems: The fractional dimension of the j and k-level (j < k) of a Boolean lattice is k − j + 2. Second, we deliver a formula for the product of standard orders, and third, we show that the fractional dimension is closed under Dedekind-MacNeille completion. In an appendix the fractional dimensions of 3-irreducible orders are listed.
