Fractal dimension constitutes the main tool to test for fractal patterns in Euclidean contexts. For this purpose, it is always used the box dimension, since it is easy to calculate, though the Hausdorff dimension, which is the oldest and also the most accurate fractal dimension, presents the best analytical properties. Additionally, fractal structures provide an appropriate topological context where new models of fractal dimension for a fractal structure could be developed in order to generalize the classical models of fractal dimension. In this survey, we gather different definitions and counterexamples regarding these new models of fractal dimension in order to show the reader how they behave mathematically with respect to the classical models, and also to point out which features of such models can be exploited to powerful effect in applications.
