On type of metric spaces

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Families of finite metric spaces are investigated. A notion of metric type is introduced and it is shown that for Banach spaces it is consistent with the standard notion of type. A theorem parallel to the Maurey-Pisier Theorem in Local Theory is proved. Embeddings of lp-cubes into the l1-cube (Hamming cube) are discussed.
