# Inequalities for The Caratheodory and Poincare Metrics in Open Unit Balls

@article{Earle2011InequalitiesFT, title={Inequalities for The Caratheodory and Poincare Metrics in Open Unit Balls}, author={C. Earle and L. Harris}, journal={Pure and Applied Mathematics Quarterly}, year={2011}, volume={7}, pages={253-273} }

We generalize a known inequality relating the Euclidean and hyperbolic metrics in Poincaré’s unit ball model of hyperbolic space. Our generalization applies to Schwarz-Pick metrics in the open unit ball of any complex Banach space. We study the case of equality, both in the general case and the case when the open unit ball is homogeneous. For open unit balls of Hilbert spaces, we explicitly determine the case of equality, and we prove a distortion theorem that quantifies the failure of equality… Expand

Subdomain geometry of hyperbolic type metrics

- Mathematics
- 2012

Given a domain $G \subsetneq \Rn$ we study the quasihyperbolic and the distance ratio metrics of $G$ and their connection to the corresponding metrics of a subdomain $D \subset G$. In each case,… Expand

Uniform Continuity and Φ-uniform Domains

We discuss the modulus of continuity of the identity mapping id : (G, d1) → (G, d2), where (G, di), i = 1, 2, are metric spaces in R . In particular, we find a sharp bound for the modulus of… Expand

C onstructing a distance that is invariant under a given class of mappings is one of the fundamental tools for the geometric approach in mathematics. The idea goes back to Klein and even to Riemann.… Expand
