On semi-Lipschitz functions with values in a quasi-normed linear space

José Manuel Sánchez-Álvarez


In a recent paper, S. Romaguera and M. Sanchis discussed several properties of semi-Lipschitz real valued functions. In this paper we analyze the structure of the space of semi-Lipschitz functions that are valued in a quasi-normed linear space. Our approach is motivated, in part, by the fact that this structure can be applied to study some processes in the theory of complexity spaces.


Semi-Lipschitz function; Normed cone; Bicomplete space; Quasi-distance; right K-complete.
