Selected Works II

This product is not available in the selected currency.


This is a two-volume collection presenting the selected works of Herbert Busemann, one of the leading geometers of the twentieth century and one of the main founders of metric geometry, convexity theory and convexity in metric spaces. Busemann also did substantial work (probably the most important) on Hilbert's Problem IV. These collected works include Busemann's most important published articles on these topics.

Volume I of the collection features Busemann's papers on the foundations of geodesic spaces and on the metric geometry of Finsler spaces.

Volume II includes Busemann's papers on convexity and integral geometry, on Hilbert's Problem IV, and other papers on miscellaneous subjects.

Each volume offers biographical documents and introductory essays on Busemann's work, documents from his correspondence and introductory essays written by leading specialists on Busemann's work. They are a valuable resource for researchers in synthetic and metric geometry, convexity theory and the foundations of geometry.
