It also contains a systematic introduction to metric geometry, as well as a detailed presentation of some facets of convexity theory that are useful in the study of nonpositive curvature.
The concepts and the techniques are illustrated by many examples, in particular from hyperbolic geometry, Hilbert geometry and Teichmüller
theory.
For the second edition, some corrections and a few additions have been made, and the bibliography has been updated.07aComplex analysis2bicssc07aDifferential & Riemannian geometry2bicssc07aReal functions2msc07aFunctions of a complex variable2msc07aSeveral complex variables and analytic spaces2msc07aGeometry2msc40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/132423cover imageuhttps://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/papadopoulos_mini.jpg
