A framed f-structure on the tangent bundle of a Finsler manifold

Esmaeil Peyghan, Chunping Zhong (2012)

Annales Polonici Mathematici

Let (M,F) be a Finsler manifold, that is, M is a smooth manifold endowed with a Finsler metric F. In this paper, we introduce on the slit tangent bundle T M ˜ a Riemannian metric G̃ which is naturally induced by F, and a family of framed f-structures which are parameterized by a real parameter c≠ 0. We prove that (i) the parameterized framed f-structure reduces to an almost contact structure on IM; (ii) the almost contact structure on IM is a Sasakian structure iff (M,F) is of constant flag curvature...

Barbilian's metrization procedure in the plane yields either Riemannian or Lagrange generalized metrics

Wladimir G. Boskoff, Bogdan D. Suceavă (2008)

Czechoslovak Mathematical Journal

In the present paper we answer two questions raised by Barbilian in 1960. First, we study how far can the hypothesis of Barbilian's metrization procedure can be relaxed. Then, we prove that Barbilian's metrization procedure in the plane generates either Riemannian metrics or Lagrance generalized metrics not reducible to Finslerian or Langrangian metrics.

Complex sprays and complex curves.

Colum Watt (2001)

Revista Matemática Complutense

After defining what is meant by a complex spray X on a complex manifold M, we introduce the notion of a spray complex curve associated to X. Several equivalent formulations are derived and we give necessary and sufficient conditions for M to admit spray complex curves for X through each point and in each direction. Refinements of this result are then derived for some special cases, for example when X is the horizontal radial vector field associated to a complex Finsler metric.

Conformal ℱ-harmonic maps for Finsler manifolds

Jintang Li (2014)

Colloquium Mathematicae

By introducing the ℱ-stress energy tensor of maps from an n-dimensional Finsler manifold to a Finsler manifold and assuming that (n-2)ℱ(t)'- 2tℱ(t)'' ≠ 0 for any t ∈ [0,∞), we prove that any conformal strongly ℱ-harmonic map must be homothetic. This assertion generalizes the results by He and Shen for harmonics map and by Ara for the Riemannian case.
