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
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 ofExpand
Caratheodory's and Kobayashi's metrics on Teichmueller space
Caratheodory's and Kobayashi's metrics on Teichmueller spaces of dimension two or more are never equal in the direction of any tangent vector defined by a separating cylindrical differential


Bounded symmetric homogeneous domains in infinite dimensional spaces
In this article, we exhibit a large class of Banach spaces whose open unit balls are bounded symmetric homogeneous domains. These Banach spaces, which we call J*-algebras, are linear spaces ofExpand
Invariant distances and metrics in complex analysis
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
Analytic invariants and the Schwarz-Pick inequality
We find numerical analytic invariants distinguishing between the infinite dimensional analogues of the classical Cartan domains of different type. Further, we define an invariant Hermitian metric onExpand
