# Geodesic bicombings on some hyperspaces

@article{Fox2022GeodesicBO, title={Geodesic bicombings on some hyperspaces}, author={Logan S. Fox}, journal={Journal of Geometry}, year={2022} }

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.
