Abstract

The (α, β) metric is a Finsler metric which is constructed from Riemannian
metric α and differential 1-form β. In this paper, we find the mean Cartan
torsion I and mean Landsberg curvature J for Kropina metric L =α^2/β and also
find the neccessary and sufficient condition for J + cLI = 0.

Keywords and Phrases : Finsler space, Projective change, Kropina metric, Projective flatness, Mean Cartan torsion , Landsberg curvature.
