In particular, we characterize strict convexity and uniform convexity of normed spaces in terms of the canonical partial metric defined by its norm.</p><p>We prove that these geometric properties can be considered, in this sense, as topological properties that appear when we compare the natural metric topology of the space with the non translation invariant topology induced by the canonical partial metric in the normed space.</p>}, number={2}, journal={Applied General Topology}, author={Oltra, Sandra and Romaguera, Salvador and Sánchez-Pérez, E.
