Original Paper


We study geometric properties of GL-spaces. We demonstrate that every finite-dimensional GL-space is polyhedral; that in dimension 2 there are only two, up to isometry, GL-spaces, namely the space whose unit sphere is a square (like \(\ell _\infty ^2\) or \(\ell _1^2\)) and the space whose unit sphere is an equilateral hexagon. Finally, we characterise the spaces \(E = ({{\mathbb {R}}}^n, \Vert \cdot \Vert _E)\) with absolute norm such that for every collection \(X_1, \ldots , X_n\) of GL-spaces their E-sum is a GL-space.
