Statistical metrics. (English) Zbl 0063.03886

The author proposes a probabilistic generalization of the theory of metric spaces by introducing the concept of probabilistic (statistical) metric space. This paper by Menger constituted the starting point for a field of research known as the theory of probabilistic metric spaces.
