About the Authors
  • Finsler geometry generalizes Riemannian geometry in the same sense that Banach spaces generalize Hilbert spaces. This book presents an expository account of seven important topics in Riemann-Finsler geometry, ones which have recently undergone significant development but have not had a detailed pedagogical treatment elsewhere. Each article will open the door to an active area of research, and is suitable for a special topics course in graduate-level differential geometry. The contributors consider issues related to volume, geodesics, curvature, complex differential geometry, and parametrized jet bundles, and include a variety of instructive examples.

    • Readable and user friendly
    • Contains an abundance of instructive examples and technology that can be transferred to other situations
    • Deals with topics that are important, but which have not had a detailed exposition elsewhere
