Enhanced negative type for finite metric trees

  title={Enhanced negative type for finite metric trees},
  author={Ian Doust},
A finite metric tree is a finite connected graph that has no cycles, endowed with an edge weighted path metric. Finite metric trees are known to have strict 1-negative type. In this paper we introduce a new family of inequalities (1) that encode the best possible quantification of the strictness of the non trivial 1-negative type inequalities for finite metric trees. These inequalities are sufficiently strong to imply that any given finite metric tree (T, d) must have strict p-negative type for… CONTINUE READING
