Let X be a simply connected, complete geodesic metric space which is nonpositively curved in the sense of Alexandrov. We assume that X contains a k-flat F of maximal dimension and consider quasiisometric embeddings f : ℝk → X whose distance function from F satisfies a certain asymptotic growth condition. We prove that if X is locally compact and cocompact, then the Hausdorff distance between f(ℝk) and F is uniformly bounded. This generalizes a well-known lemma of Mostow on quasiflats in symmetric spaces of noncompact type.

## Abstract

Let X be a simply connected, complete geodesic metric space which is nonpositively curved in the sense of Alexandrov. We assume that X contains a k-flat F of maximal dimension and consider quasiisometric embeddings f : ℝk → X whose distance function from F satisfies a certain asymptotic growth condition. We prove that if X is locally compact and cocompact, then the Hausdorff distance between f(ℝk) and F is uniformly bounded. This generalizes a well-known lemma of Mostow on quasiflats in symmetric spaces of noncompact type.

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.

You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
