Look at the alphabetical List of Built-in atheematica Objects, which
begins on page 593, under Graphics. (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.  Under Dashing
finfururther explanations.
