To develop new tools in this area, the book provides a graduate-level introduction to differential geometry of complex Finsler metrics. After reviewing real Finsler geometry stressing global results, complex Finsler geometry is presented introducing connections, Kählerianity, geodesics, curvature. Brand new Book. Finsler geometry is Riemannian geometry without the restriction that the line element be quadratic. It has various applications especially in mechanics, gravitational theory, electromagnetism, information geometry etc.

In Finsler geometry, the study of transnormal functions has just begun, see but there are already some interesting applications in wildfire modeling (see), eikonal equations (see e.g.) and general relativity (see e.g.). immediate use in Riemannian geometry, the more geometric constructions with norms, convex bodies, and k-volume densities that make up the heart of this paper have immediate applications to Finsler geometry. 2. A Short Review of the Geometry of Normed Spaces This section is a quick review of the geometry of nite-dimensional normed spaces adapted.

tool in diﬀerential geometry. Remark If the dimension of M is zero, then M is a countable set equipped with the discrete topology (every subset of M is an open set). If dimM = 1, then M is locally homeomorphic to an open interval; if dimM = 2, then it is locally homeomorphic to . Subjects treated include higher order Lagrange geometry, the recent theory of -Lagrange manifolds, electromagnetic theory and neurophysiology. This book is recommended as a (supplementary) text in graduate courses in differential geometry and its applications, and will also be of interest to physicists and mathematical biologists.

After a review of necessary mathematical definitions and derivations, prior work involving application of Finsler geometry in continuum mechanics of solids is reviewed.

A new theoretical description of continua with microstructure is then outlined, merging concepts from Finsler geometry and phase field theories of materials science. The second known application of Finsler geometry towards finite deformation of solid bodies appears in Chapter 8 of the book of Bejancu.

Finsler geometry is named after Paul Finsler who studied it in his doc- toral thesis in Presently Finsler geometry has found an abundance of applications in both physics and practical applications [KT03, AIM94, Ing96, DC01].

The present presentation follows [She01b, She01a]. In mathematics, particularly differential geometry, a Finsler manifold is a differentiable manifold M where a (possibly asymmetric) Minkowski functional F(x,−) is provided on each tangent space T x M, that enables one to define the length of any smooth curve γ: [a,b] → M as = ∫ ((), ˙ ()).Finsler manifolds are more general than Riemannian manifolds since the tangent norms need not be.
