5 - What is a hierarchically hyperbolic space?

from Part Two - Expository Articles


The first part of this survey is a heuristic, non-technical discussion of what an HHS is, and the aim is to provide a good mental picture both to those actively doing research on HHSs and to those who only seek a basic understanding out of pure curiosity. It can be read independently of the second part, which is a detailed technical discussion of the axioms and the main tools to deal with HHSs.
