By Dmitri Burago, Yuri Burago, Sergei Ivanov

"Metric geometry" is an method of geometry in response to the thought of size on a topological area. This process skilled a really quickly improvement within the previous few a long time and penetrated into many different mathematical disciplines, comparable to workforce idea, dynamical structures, and partial differential equations. the target of this graduate textbook is twofold: to provide a close exposition of uncomplicated notions and methods utilized in the idea of size areas, and, extra often, to supply an user-friendly creation right into a large number of geometrical issues concerning the proposal of distance, together with Riemannian and Carnot-Caratheodory metrics, the hyperbolic aircraft, distance-volume inequalities, asymptotic geometry (large scale, coarse), Gromov hyperbolic areas, convergence of metric areas, and Alexandrov areas (non-positively and non-negatively curved spaces). The authors are inclined to paintings with "easy-to-touch" mathematical gadgets utilizing "easy-to-visualize" tools. The authors set a difficult aim of constructing the middle components of the ebook available to first-year graduate scholars. such a lot new suggestions and strategies are brought and illustrated utilizing least difficult instances and warding off technicalities. The booklet comprises many routines, which shape an essential component of exposition.
