Abstract: We study the utility of chains defined on causal sets in estimating continuum properties like the curvature, the proper time and the spacetime dimension through a numerical analysis. In particular, we show that in dS2 and FLRW3 spacetimes the formalism of Roy M et al 2013 Phys. Rev. D 87 044046 with slight modifications gives the right continuum properties.We also discuss a possible test of manifoldlikeness using this formalism by considering two models of non-manifoldlike causal sets. This is a part of a broader idea of the geometrical reconstruction of continuum properties given a discrete sub structure, in this case the causal set.
