A Finsler space is called with -metric if there exists a 2-homogeneous function of two variables such that the Finsler metric is given by where is a Riemannian metric and is a 1-form on. Example 7. (1 0) If, then the Finsler space with Finsler metric is called a Randers space.

The Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MSRI), founded in , is an independent nonprofit mathematical research institution whose funding sources include the National Science Foundation, foundations, corporations, and more than 90 universities and institutions. The Institute is located at 17 Gauss Way, on the University of California, Berkeley campus, close to Grizzly Peak, on the. Abstract. In this chapter we study homogeneous Finsler spaces. In Sect. , we define the notions of Minkowski Lie pairs and Minkowski Lie algebras to give an algebraic description of invariant Finsler metrics on homogeneous manifolds and bi-invariant Finsler metrics on Lie groups.

For smooth, positive definite Finsler metrics, this important theorem states that, if the metric is of Berwald type (i.e., its Chern–Rund connection defines an affine connection on the underlying manifold), then it is affinely equivalent to a Riemann space, meaning that its.

Busemann function. Viewing Finsler spaces as regular metric spaces, the author discusses the problems from the modern geometry point of view. The book begins with the basics on Finsler spaces, including the notions of geodesics and curvatures, then deals with basic comparison theorems on metrics and measures and their applications to the Levy concentration theory.

Metric spaces whose geodesics are isomorphic to the system of lines in (a convex domain of) the aﬃne or projective space are named Desarguesian spaces by Buse-mann. They have been introduced in his book Metric Methods in Finsler Spaces and in the Foundations of Geometry [3] and the theory has been further developped.

Coleman and M. Gurtin: J. Chem. Phys. 47 (), [10]. Even in the just mentioned monographs and review papers a number of geometric and physical constructions and Finsler geometry methods were considered for both types of metric compatible or noncompatible d-connections in Finsler spaces, the most related to “standard physics” constructions were elaborated for the Cartan and canonical d.

In Finsler geometry, each point of a base manifold can be endowed with coordinates describing its position as well as a set of one or more vectors describing directions, for example.

The associated metric tensor may generally depend on direction as well as position, and a number of connections emerge associated with various covariant derivatives involving affine and nonlinear coefficients.

Busemann, H., Metric Methods in Finsler Spaces and in the Foundations of Geometry’, Ann. of 8, Princeton, Google Scholar.The extensive work of H. BUSEMANN has opened up new avenues of approach to Finsler geometry which are independent of the methods of classical tensor analysis.

In the latter sense, therefore, a full description of this approach does not fall within the scope of this treatise, although its fundamental l significance cannot be doubted.In Finsler geometry (especially when the metric is not quadratic), however, real and complex Finsler geometry are not as tightly related as that of Riemannian and Hermitian geometry.
