# On the nonexistence of bilipschitz parameterizations and geometric problems about $A_\infty$-weights

@article{Semmes1996OnTN, title={On the nonexistence of bilipschitz parameterizations and geometric problems about \$A\_\infty\$-weights}, author={S. Semmes}, journal={Revista Matematica Iberoamericana}, year={1996}, volume={12}, pages={337-410} }

How can one recognize when a metric space is bilipschitz equivalent to an Euclidean space? One should not take the abstraction of metric spaces too seriously here; subsets of Rn are already quite interesting. It is easy to generate geometric conditions which are necessary for bilipschitz equivalence, but it is not clear that such conditions should ever be sufficient. The main point of this paper is that the optimistic conjectures about the existence of bilipschitz parametrizations are wrong. In…

BILIPSCHITZ EMBEDDINGS OF METRIC SPACES INTO EUCLIDEAN SPACES

- Mathematics
- 1999

When does a metric space admit a bilipschitz embedding into some finite-dimensional Euclidean space? There does not seem to be a simple answer to this question. Results of Assouad [A1], [A2], [A3] do…

Bilipschitz Embeddings of Metric Spaces into Space Forms

The paper describes some basic geometric tools to construct bilipschitz embeddings of metric spaces into (finite-dimensional) Euclidean or hyperbolic spaces. One of the main results implies the…

L_1 embeddings of the Heisenberg group and fast estimation of graph isoperimetry

- MathematicsArXiv
- 2010

This work surveys connections between the theory of bi-Lipschitz embeddings and the Sparsest Cut Problem in combinatorial optimization and explains how the key ideas evolved over the past 20 years, emphasizing the interactions with Banach space theory, geometric measure theory, and geometric group theory.

REGULAR MAPPINGS BETWEEN DIMENSIONS

- Mathematics
- 2000

The notions of Lipschitz and bilipschitz mappings provide classes of mappings connected to the geometry of metric spaces in certain ways. A notion between these two is given by "regular mappings"…

Conformal Grushin spaces

- Mathematics
- 2015

We introduce a class of metrics on $\mathbb{R}^n$ generalizing the classical Grushin plane. These are length metrics defined by the line element $ds = d_E(\cdot,Y)^{-\beta}ds_E$ for a closed nonempty…

Bi-Lipschitz Pieces between Manifolds

A well-known class of questions asks the following: If $X$ and $Y$ are metric measure spaces and $f:X\rightarrow Y$ is a Lipschitz mapping whose image has positive measure, then must $f$ have large…

Uniformization of two-dimensional metric surfaces

- Mathematics

We establish uniformization results for metric spaces that are homeomorphic to the Euclidean plane or sphere and have locally finite Hausdorff 2-measure. Applying the geometric definition of…

In a 2013 paper, Cheeger and Kleiner introduced a new type of dimension for metric spaces, the "Lipschitz dimension". We study the dimension-theoretic properties of Lipschitz dimension, including its…
