### Abstract

For a finite metric space V with a metric ρ, let V^{n} be the metric space in which the distance between (a_{1}, . . ., a_{n}) and (b_{1}, . . ., b_{n}) is the sum ∑^{n}_{i=1} ρ(a_{i}, b_{i}). We obtain an asymptotic formula for the logarithm of the maximum possible number of points in V^{n} of distance at least d from a set of half the points of V^{n}, when n tends to infinity and d satisfies d ≫ √n.

N2 - For a finite metric space V with a metric ρ, let Vn be the metric space in which the distance between (a1, . . ., an) and (b1, . . ., bn) is the sum ∑ni=1 ρ(ai, bi). We obtain an asymptotic formula for the logarithm of the maximum possible number of points in Vn of distance at least d from a set of half the points of Vn, when n tends to infinity and d satisfies d ≫ √n.
