## A note on the Gromov-Hausdorff-Prokhorov distance between (locally) compact metric measure spaces.(English)Zbl 1285.60004

Summary: We present an extension of the Gromov-Hausdorff metric on the set of compact metric spaces: the Gromov-Hausdorff-Prokhorov metric on the set of compact metric spaces endowed with a finite measure. We then extend it to the non-compact case by describing a metric on the set of rooted complete locally compact length spaces endowed with a boundedly finite measure. We prove that this space with the extended Gromov-Hausdorff-Prokhorov metric is a Polish space. This generalization is needed to define Lévy trees, which are (possibly unbounded) random real trees endowed with a boundedly finite measure.
