Abstract

In the present paper we treat the Finsler space F^{∗n} equipped with the
fundamental function L∗ which is obtained by the conformal transformation of the metric ds = (g_ij (y) y_i y_j )^{1/2} + di(x, y) y i. We have here expressed the Cartan’s connection of F ∗n = (Mn , L^∗ ) in terms of the one of F^n = (M^n , L)
using the difference tensor Di jk. Also, we have obtained the v-curvature tensor S^∗_{hijk} of the Finsler space F^{∗n}

Keywords and Phrases : Minkowskian space, h-vector and conformal transformation.
