We prove three facts about intrinsic geometry of surfaces in a normed (Minkowski ) space. When put together, these facts demonstrate a rather intriguing picture. Submission history.

A Course in Metric Geometry
Would you like to tell us about a lower price? The style is Russian which I like, but it’s not the best example of this type of writing. The authors also do a good job in general of summoning the neccessary background material without dwelling on review too extensively; you should probably have already seen the Hausdorff measure and the fundamental group before you pick up this book, but the book recalls the main concepts and results with helpful exercises in case your memory has faded or don’t have much experience with such notions.
This paper is a continuation of our paper about boundary rigidity and filling minimality of metrics close to flat ones. Online Price 1 Label: For example, polyhedral complexes are not rigorously defined. ComiXology Thousands of Digital Comics.
