Two Special Simply Connected Spaces of Nonpositive Curvature
- 16 Downloads
We construct two examples of spaces homeomorphic to R n (n≥3) each of which has a closed geodesic and admits no isoperimetric inequality. The first is a complete polyhedral metric space of nonpositive curvature, and the second is an incomplete Riemannian space with nonpositive sectional curvatures.
