    Using fractal self-similarity and functional-expectation relations, the classical theory of box integrals (being expectations on unit hypercubes)is extended to a class of fractal string-generated Cantor sets" (SCSs) embedded in unit hypercubes of arbitrary dimension. Motivated by laboratory studies on the distribution of brain synapses, these SCSs were designed for dimensional freedom|a suitable choice of generating string allows for �ne-tuning the fractal dimension of the corresponding set. We also establish closed forms for certain statistical moments on SCSs, develop a precision algorithm for high embedding dimensions, and report various numerical results. The underlying numerical quadrature issues are in themselves quite challenging.
