A natural Galois connection between generalized norms and metrics. (English) Zbl 06869859

Summary: Having in mind a well-known connection between norms and metrics on vector spaces, for an additively written group \(X\), we establish a natural Galois connection between functions of \(X\) to \(\mathbb{R}\) and \(X^2\) to \(\mathbb{R}\).
