Some applications of Ball's extension theorem

Abstract

We present two applications of Ball's extension theorem. First we observe that Ball's extension theorem, together with the recent solution of Ball's Markov type 2 problem due to Naor, Peres, Schramm and Sheffield, imply a generalization, and an alternative proof of, the Johnson-Lindenstrauss extension theorem. Second, we prove that the distortion required to embed the integer lattice {0,1,...,m}^n, equipped with the ℓ_p^n metric, in any 2-uniformly convex Banach space is of order min {n^(1/2 1/p),m^(1-2/p)}
