Comparing the Floyd and ideal boundaries of a metric space.
Transactions of the American Mathematical Society, 361 (2).
We discuss and compare the notions of ideal boundaries, Floyd
boundaries and Gromov boundaries of metric spaces. The three types of
boundaries at infinity are compared in the general setting of unbounded length
spaces as well as in the special cases of CAT(0) and Gromov hyperbolic spaces.
Gromov boundaries, usually defined only for Gromov hyperbolic spaces, are
extended to arbitrary metric spaces.
