Volume 06 : Metric Spaces, Convexity and Nonpositive Curvature

Author : Athanase Papadopoulos
ISBN 978-3-03719-010-4 - December 2004, 300 pages
Ed. EMS Publishing House.

This book is about metric spaces of nonpositive curvature in the sense of Busemann, that is, metric spaces whose distance function satisfies a convexity condition. The book also contains a systematic introduction to the theory of geodesics, as well as a detailed presentation of some facets of convexity theory that are useful in the study of nonpositive curvature.

Relevant information and order form are available on EMS web site.
