He was the first to prove consistency of non-Euclidean geometry by modeling it on a surface of constant curvature, the pseudosphere, and in the interior of an n-dimensional unit sphere, the so-called Beltrami–Klein model.

CAT(k) space

CAT(0)CAT(0) spaceCAT(''k'') space
Intuitively, triangles in a space are "slimmer" than corresponding "model triangles" in a standard space of constant curvature k. In a space, the curvature is bounded from above by k. A notable special case is k=0; complete spaces are known as Hadamard spaces after the French mathematician Jacques Hadamard.
