### Abstract

We construct a Π0 1-class X that has classical packing dimension 0 and effective packing dimension 1. This implies that, unlike in the case of effective Hausdorff dimension, there is no natural correspondence principle (as defined by Lutz) for effective packing dimension. We also examine the relationship between upper box dimension and packing A major theme of computability theory is the effectivization of classical mathematics. To do this one takes an existing (i.e. classical) mathematical notion and develops a new computability-theoretic analogue of that notion. Afterwards, one tries to determine the similarities and differences between the
