SSAS Named Sets – Static Vs Dynamic

They were only static in SQL Server 2005, but with SQL Server 2008, Microsoft added dynamic sets.
The static named sets are calculated when they are requested the first time in a session, or in other words they are evaluated at the time of cube processing.
The dynamic named sets are calculated each time a query references it, or in other words they are evaluated every time the query is run.
