Abstract: Let $ X$ be a smooth projective variety. The Iitaka dimension of a divisor $ D$ is an important invariant, but it does not only depend on the numerical class of $ D$. However, there are several definitions of ``numerical Iitaka dimension'', depending only on the numerical class. In this note, we show that there exists a pseuodoeffective $ \mathbb{R}$-divisor for which these invariants take different values. The key is the construction of an example of a pseudoeffective $ \mathbb{R}$-divisor $ D_+$ for which $ h^0(X,\left \lfloor {m D_+}\right \rfloor +A)$ is bounded above and below by multiples of $ m^{3/2}$ for any sufficiently ample $ A$.
