Projectively Flat Finsler Space With Special (α, β)−Metric


S. K. Narasimhamurthy, B. C. Chethana and Latha kumari G. N.


In this paper, we consider special (α, β)−metric L = α + 2 β^2/α −(1/3) β^4/α^3 + ϵβ  (ϵ ̸= 0) constant, and discuss the condition for a Finsler space with special (α, β)−metric to be projectively flat on the basis of Matsumoto’s results where
α is a Riemannian metric, β is a differential 1-form.

Keywords and Phrases : Finsler Space, (α, β)−metrics, Projectively flat, Matsumoto metric, Riemannian metric
