A short proof that a subquadratic isoperimetric inequality implies a linear one. (English) Zbl 0835.53051
It is proved that if a path-metric space (with some notion of area) satisfies a subquadratic isoperimetric inequality, then it satisfies a linear one, and so it is hyperbolic in the sense of Gromov.
