Abstract: We study generalized absolute values on a field or a commutative ring with unit element satisfying an approximate triangle inequality and an approximate multiplicative property. We prove that they are always Hölder equivalent to an absolute value. This implies geometric rigidity results for Lipschitz and Hölder deformations of metric rings.
