Abstract

The (α, β)-metric is a Finsler metric which is contstructed from a Riemannian metric α and a differential 1-form β. In this paper Finsler space with some
(α, β)-metrics like L = (α + β)^2/ α and L^2 = 2 α β becomes weakly Berwald
spaces under some geometric and algebraic conditions.

Keywords and Phrases : Berwald space, Finsler space, Weakly Berwald
space, (α, β)-metric.
