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.

I chose this text because it has exercises, it appears to cover nonpositive and nonnegative curvature in roughly equal proportion, and it’s less than half the price of Bridson-Haefliger. Get fast, free shipping with Amazon Prime. Amazon Renewed Refurbished products with a warranty.

It is so far without competition and fills a gap in the market.

Of course, a well-trained mathematician can get past the burafo, but this text is supposed to be for first year graduate students. Brago Price 2 Label: For example, polyhedral complexes are not rigorously defined.
