We establish a higher-dimensional version of multifractal analysis for several classes of hyperbolic dynamical systems. This means that we consider multifractal decompositions which are associated to multi-dimensional parameters. In particular, we obtain a conditional variational principle, which shows that the topological entropy of the level sets of pointwise dimensions, local entropies, and Lyapunov exponents can be simultaneously, approximated by the entropy of ergodic measures. A similar result holds for the Hausdorff dimension. This study allows us to exhibit new nontrivial phenomena absent in the one-dimensional multifractal analysis. In particular, while the domain of definition of a one-dimensional spectrum is always an interval, we show that for higher-dimensional spectra the domain may not be convex and may even have empty interior, while still containing an uncountable number of points. Furthermore, the interior of the domain of a higher-dimensional spectrum has in general more than one connected component.
