The author and C. Tricot [Trans. Am. Math. Soc. 288, 679-699 (1985; Zbl 0537.28003)] gave the definition and properties of packing measure with respect to \(\phi\) (s), a monotone real function. Since \(\phi\)- packing measure is at least as big as Hausdorff \(\phi\)-measure, the fractal index obtained from packing measure, called the packing dimension of a set, is at least as big as the Hausdorff dimension. The present paper obtains the packing dimension of sets defined by the trajectory of a Lévy process in \({\mathbb{R}}^ n\).
