Abstract: Previous study of the Assouad dimension of planar self-affine sets has relied heavily on the underlying IFS having a ‘grid structure’, thus allowing for the use of approximate squares. We study the Assouad dimension of a class of self-affine carpets which do not have an associated grid structure. We find that the Assouad dimension is related to the box and Assouad dimensions of the (self-similar) projection of the self-affine set onto the first coordinate and to the local dimensions of the projection of a natural Bernoulli measure onto the first coordinate. In a special case we relate the Assouad dimension of the Przytycki-Urbański sets to the lower local dimensions of Bernoulli convolutions.
