The metre wild, the metre wild,
How many an eve I loiter where,
By its sweet melody beguiled,
I muse on nature's charms and share
Her metrical symposium.

Important here is that the interior ΣN of the probability simplex ΣN is the complete metric space with the Hilbert pro jective metric, see, e.g., [11, 14, 15] and references therein on the properties of the Hilbert pro jective metric.
Asymptotic behaviour of random Markov chains with tridiagonal generators
Since total variation distance dominates the Prokhorov metric (or any other metric for the topology of weak convergence), we can choose L such that these two pairs are each within ǫ/3 in the Prokhorov metric.

Consciousness and the structuring property of typical data
If the metric space (X, d) is connected by Lipschitz curves, then the length induces a new distance dl , given by: dl (x, y) = inf {ld (c([a, b])) : c : [a, b] → X Lipschitz , c(a) = x , c(b) = y} A length metric space is a metric space (X, d), connected by Lipschitz curves, such that d = dl .
Sub-riemannian geometry from intrinsic viewpoint
In case P is the metric profile of a point x ∈ X in a metric space (X, d) then the curvdimension at x and curvature at x are the curvimension, respectively curvature, of the metric profile of x.
