(I find this the best place to start when unsure about some Mathematica object.) There you will find listed the primitives Thickness and Dashing listed. In the index under Thickness find a reference to page 142. There the explanation of these two primitives is given. You can also find explanations of both primitives in the L-o-Bi-M-O.
