Let A ⊆ C be a starlike set with a center a. We prove that every tangent space to A at the point a is isometric to the smallest closed cone, with the vertex a, which includes A. A partial converse to this result is obtained. The tangent space to convex sets is also discussed.

Geodesic spaces tangent to metric spaces
We investigate the geometry of spaces tangent and pretangent to general metric spaces with marked point. We find a sufficient condition under which every separable tangent space is geodesic. This
Completeness, Closedness and Metric Reflections of Pseudometric Spaces
. It is well-known that a metric space ( X, d ) is complete iff the set X is closed in every metric superspace of ( X, d ) . For a given pseudometric space ( Y, ρ ) , we describe the maximal class CEC
On equivalence of unbounded metric spaces at infinity
Let (X, d) be an unbounded metric space. To investigate the asymptotic behavior of (X, d) at infinity, one can consider a sequence of rescaling metric spaces (X, 1 rn d) generated by given sequence

Finite Spaces Pretangent to Metric Spaces at Infinity
Let X be an unbounded metric space, and let \( \tilde{r} \) be a sequence of positive real numbers tending to infinity. We define the pretangent space \( {\Omega}_{\infty, \tilde{r}}^X \) to X at


Tangent spaces to metric spaces and to their subspaces
We investigate tangent spaces and metric space valued derivatives at points of a general metric spaces. The conditions under which two different subspaces of the metric space have isometric tangent
Fine Properties of Sets of Finite Perimeter in Doubling Metric Measure Spaces
The aim of this paper is to study the properties of the perimeter measure in the quite general setting of metric measure spaces. In particular, defining the essential boundary ∂*E of E as the set of
Sobolev spaces on an arbitrary metric space
We define Sobolev space W1,p for 1<p≤∞ on an arbitrary metric space with finite diameter and equipped with finite, positive Borel measure. In the Euclidean case it coincides with standard Sobolev
Metric Spaces, Convexity and Nonpositive Curvature
This is the second edition of a book which appeared in 2005. The new edition is an expanded and revised version. The book is about metric spaces of nonpositive curvature in the sense of Busemann,

We exhibit a large class of metric spaces whose infinitesimal quasiconformal structure is strong enough to capture the global quasiconformal structure. A sufficient condition for this to happen is
Newtonian spaces: An extension of Sobolev spaces to metric measure spaces
This paper studies a possible definition of Sobolev spaces in abstract metric spaces, and answers in the affirmative the question whether this definition yields a Banach space. The paper also

The papers [3], [7], [2], [1], [5], [6], and [4] provide the notation and terminology for this paper. We consider metric structures which are systems 〈 a carrier, a distance 〉 where the carrier is a
