Abstract

It is proved that ifYX are metric spaces withY havingn≧2 points then any mapf fromY into a Banach spaceZ can be extended to a map\(\hat f\) fromX intoZ so that\(\left\| {\hat f} \right\|_{lip} \leqq c log n\left\| f \right\|_{lip} \) wherec is an absolute constant. A related result is obtained for the case whereX is assumed to be a finite-dimensional normed space andY is an arbitrary subset ofX.
