Some Basic Constructions
In this section we describe some basic constructions that allow one to manufacture interesting new metric spaces out of more familiar ones. We consider whether such properties as being a geodesic space are preserved by these constructions. Each of the constructions which we consider here will play a significant role in Part II.
