Abstract

We provide examples of nonlocally, compact, geodesic Ptolemy metric spaces which are not uniquely geodesic. On the other hand, we show that locally, compact, geodesic Ptolemy metric spaces are uniquely geodesic. Moreover, we prove that a metric space is CAT(0) if and only if it is Busemann convex and Ptolemy.
