Quasispaces induced by vector fields measurable in ℝ3
- 26 Downloads
We study some metric functions that are induced by a class of basis vector fields in ℝ3 with measurable coordinates. These functions are proved to be quasimetrics in the domain of definition of the vector fields. Under some natural constraints, the Rashevsky-Chow Theorem and the Ball-Box Theorem are established for the classes of vector fields we consider.
