We give tight bounds on the relation between the primal and dual of various combinatorial dimensions, such as the pseudo-dimension and fat-shattering dimension, for multi-valued function classes. These dimensional notions play an important role in the area of learning theory. We first review some (folklore) results that bound the dual dimension of a function class in terms of its primal, and after that give (almost) matching lower bounds. In particular, we give an appropriate generalization to multi-valued function classes of a well-known bound due to Assouad (1983), that relates the primal and dual VC-dimension of a binary function class.
