Lipschitz functions on quasiconformal trees
We first identify (up to linear isomorphism) the Lipschitz free spaces of quasiarcs. By decomposing quasiconformal trees into quasiarcs as done in an article of David, Eriksson-Bique, and Vellis, we then identify the Lipschitz free spaces of quasiconformal trees and prove that quasiconformal trees have Lipschitz dimension 1. Generalizing the aforementioned decomposition, we define a geometric tree-like decomposition of a metric space. Our results pertaining to quasiconformal trees are in fact special cases of results about metric spaces admitting a geometric tree-like decomposition. Furthermore, the methods employed in our study of Lipschitz free spaces yield a decomposition of any (weak) quasiarc into rectifiable and purely unrectifiable subsets, which may be of independent interest.
