An n-point metric space (X,D) is an n-set X and a metric D, which can be defined by a table of distances between pairs of points of X. Metric embeddings provide compact representations for such metric spaces while at the same time preserving the metric up to some distortion. Such representations have numerous applications in computer science, if they exist. The starting point of our study is the survey by Indyk and Matousek from 2002 (revised version with Sidiropoulos from 2017). The plan is to study some fundamental results described in the survey together with more recent literature in the state of the art of the field.
