• #### An equivalence class decomposition of finite metric spaces via Gromov products ﻿

Let (X, d) be a finite metric space with elements P-i, i = 1,..., n and with the distance functions d(ij) The Gromov Product of the "triangle" (P-i, P-j, P-k) with vertices P-t, P-j and P-k at the vertex Pi is defined by Delta(ijk) = 1/2(d(ij) + d(ik) - d(jk)). We show that the collection of Gromov products determines the metric. We call a metric space Delta-generic, if the set of all Gromov products at a fixed vertex P-i has a unique smallest element (for i = 1,., n). We consider the function ...

• #### Gromov product structures, quadrangle structures and split metric spaces ﻿

Let (X,d) be a finite metric space with elements Pi, i=1,…,n and with distances dij≔d(Pi,Pj) for i,j=1,…,n. The “Gromov product” Δijk, is defined as [Formula presented]. (X,d) is called Δ-generic, if, for each fixed i, the set of Gromov products Δijk has a unique smallest element, Δijiki. The Gromov product structure on a Δ-generic finite metric space (X,d) is the map that assigns the edge Ejiki to Pi. A finite metric space is called “quadrangle generic”, if for all 4-point subsets {Pi,Pj,Pk,Pl}, ...
