A result of Bangert states that the stable norm associated to any Riemannian metric on the 2torus T ² is strictly convex. We demonstrate that the space of stable norms associated to metrics on T ² forms a proper dense subset of the space of strictly convex norms on R2{/span> . In particular, given a strictly convex norm  · _{∞} on R2{/span> we construct a sequence ⟨∥⋅∥j⟩∞j=1{/span> of stable norms that converge to  · _{∞} in the topology of compact convergence and have the property that for each r > 0 there is an N≡N(r){/span> such that  · _{ j }agrees with  · _{∞} on Z2∩{(a,b):a2+b2≤r}{/span> for all j ≥ N. Using this result, we are able to derive results on multiplicities which arise in the minimum length spectrum of 2tori and in the simple length spectrum of hyperbolic tori.
