4:00 pm Wednesday, April 1, 2009 Geometry-Analysis Seminar: A Dual Characterization for Path Metric Spacesby
Peter Stollmann (Technische Universität Chemnitz) in HB 227- Path metric or length spaces are metric spaces in which any two points can be joined by a path with length arbitrarily close to the distance of the points. In my talk I will explain a characterization in terms of a natural dual object, the set of 1-Lipschitz functions. As an application I will describe the intrinsic metric of Dirichlet forms and show that the latter always induce length spaces.
