We show that if (X, d) is a metric space which admits a consistent convex geodesic bicombing, then we can construct a conical bicombing on CB(X), the hyperspace of nonempty, closed, bounded, and convex subsets of X (with the Hausdorff metric). If X is a normed space or an R-tree, this same method produces a consistent convex bicombing on CB(X). We follow this by examining a geodesic bicombing on the nonempty compact subsets of X , assuming X is a proper metric space. 


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. Alexandrov, and the structure of groups which act on such spaces by

Spaces with convex geodesic bicombings
In the geometry of CAT(0) or Busemann spaces every pair of geodesics, call them α and β, have convex distance; meaning d ◦ (α, β) is a convex function I → R provided the geodesics are parametrized

Conical geodesic bicombings on subsets of normed vector spaces
Abstract We establish existence and uniqueness results for conical geodesic bicombings on subsets of normed vector spaces. Concerning existence, we give a first example of a convex geodesic bicombing
Flats in Spaces with Convex Geodesic Bicombings
Abstract In spaces of nonpositive curvature the existence of isometrically embedded flat (hyper)planes is often granted by apparently weaker conditions on large scales.We show that some such results
Hyperbolizing Hyperspaces
The aims of this paper are to establish connections between a metric space X and the large-scale geometry (in the sense of Gromov) of the hyperspace H(X) of its nondegenerate closed bounded subsets
Convex geodesic bicombings and hyperbolicity
A geodesic bicombing on a metric space selects for every pair of points a geodesic connecting them. We prove existence and uniqueness results for geodesic bicombings satisfying different convexity
