AbstractWe show that for n ≥ 5, a length space (X; d) satisfies a rough n-point condition if and only if it is rough CAT(0). As a consequence, we show that the class of rough CAT(0) spaces is closed under reasonably general limit processes such as Cited by: 2.

A metric space is a nonempty set M together with a nonnegative real-valued distance function d(x,y) deﬁned for. spaces instead of discussing spaces covered by Hadamard spaces.

Here are several examples of Hadamard spaces and metric spaces of nonposi-tive and respectively bounded Alexandrov curvature. (1) Riemannian manifolds of nonpositive sectional curvature: the main exam-ples are symmetric spaces of noncompact type, see [Hel, ChEb].

The hyperbolic plane $\mathbf H^2=\{(a, b)\in \mathbf R^2:\ b>0\}$, (with Riemannian metric $(dx^2+dy^2)/y^2$) is $\delta$-hyperbolic for some $\delta>0$. This book has been cited by the following publications.

Similarly to the definitions of Busemann and CAT(0) spaces, it is based on comparing triangles in the metric space in question with triangles in the Euclidean plane, but in contrast it does not require the space to be by: CMI President Martin Bridson, together with co-author André Haefliger, has won the Steele Prize for Mathematical Exposition awarded by the American Mathematical Society for the book 'Metric Spaces of Non-positive Curvature', published by Springer-Verlag in In the words of the citation "Metric Spaces of Non-positive Curvature is the authoritative reference for a huge swath of.

curvatures are non-positive. The simplest non-manifold example of a CAT(O) space is a connected simplicial tree endowed with a metric such that each edge is isometric to a compact interval of the real line. We note the following basic facts about the geometry of geodesies in CAT(O) spaces.
