Abstract. For each 1 \leq p < \infty, we formulate a necessary and sufficient condition for an admissible metric to be extremal for the Fuglede p-modulus of a system of measures. When p = 2, this characterization generalizes Beurling's criterion, a sufficient condition for an admissible metric to be extremal for the extremal length of a planar curve family. In addition, we prove that every Borel function \varphi : Rn -> [0,\infty] satisfying 0 < \int \varphip < \infty is extremal for the p-modulus of some curve family in Rn.
