A metric space $M = \struct {A, d}$ is an ordered pair consisting of:

$(1): \quad$ a non-empty set $A$

together with:

$(2): \quad$ a real-valued function $d: A \times A \to \R$ which acts on $A$, satisfying the metric space axioms:
\((M1)\)   $:$     \(\displaystyle \forall x \in A:\) \(\displaystyle d \left({x, x}\right) = 0 \)             
\((M2)\)   $:$     \(\displaystyle \forall x, y, z \in A:\) \(\displaystyle d \left({x, y}\right) + d \left({y, z}\right) \ge d \left({x, z}\right) \)             
\((M3)\)   $:$     \(\displaystyle \forall x, y \in A:\) \(\displaystyle d \left({x, y}\right) = d \left({y, x}\right) \)             
\((M4)\)   $:$     \(\displaystyle \forall x, y \in A:\) \(\displaystyle x \ne y \implies d \left({x, y}\right) > 0 \)
