Cited by: non-positive curvature in Riemannian geometry and allows one to faithfully reflect the same concept in a much wider setting — that of geodesic metric spaces. Because the CAT(0) condition captures the essence of non-positive curvature so well, spaces which satisfy this condition display many of the elegant features inherent in the. Request PDF | Metric Spaces of Non-Positive Curvature | This book describes the global properties of simply-connected spaces that are non-positively curved in the sense of A. D.
