  1. unexpansive

    In mathematics, particularly in metric spaces, a map or function is referred to as unexpansive if the distance between images under the function does not exceed the original distance between points. Specifically, it means that for any two points x and y in a given set, the distance between f(x) and f(y) is less than or equal to the distance between x and y. This concept is primarily used in fields like analysis, topology, and optimization theory.
