- non-negativity: for all x ∈ X, p(x) ≥ 0;
- definiteness: for x ∈ X, x = 0 if and only if p(x) = p(−x) = 0;
- homogeneity: for all x ∈ X and all λ ≥ 0, p(λx) = λp(x);
- the triangle inequality: for all x, y ∈ X, p(x + y) ≤ p(x) + p(y).
- On the real line R, the function p given by
- is an asymmetric norm but not a norm.
- More generally, given a convex absorbing subset K of a real vector space containing no non-zero subspace, the Minkowski functional p given by
- is an asymmetric norm but not necessarily a norm, unless K is also balanced.
