# An Introduction to Finsler Geometry

Every Finsler manifold becomes an intrinsic quasimetric space when the distance between two points is defined as the infimum length of the curves that join them. The Finsler metric F is also required to be smooth , more precisely:.

Here the Hessian of F 2 at v is the symmetric bilinear form. If F is strongly convex, then it is a Minkowski norm on each tangent space. A reversible Finsler metric defines a norm in the usual sense on each tangent space. Let M , d be a quasimetric so that M is also a differentiable manifold and d is compatible with the differential structure of M in the following sense:.

The Finsler function F obtained in this way restricts to an asymmetric typically non-Minkowski norm on each tangent space of M.

## An Introduction to Riemann-Finsler Geometry

In analogy with the Riemannian case, there is a version. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. For a smooth function u on M , the gradient vector and the Finsler-Laplacian of u is defined by. In particular, on M u we have.

Let M , F be a Finsler manifold. Define the distance function by. Lemma 2.

Then on M u we have. Theorem 3. Using 2. We refer to [ 14 ] for details. This yields. Combining 3. Proposition 3. Proposition 4. For two positive integrable functions f and g , if f g is monotone increasing, then the function. Theorem 4.

Since the Stokes formula still holds for Lipschitz continuous functions, we have. Combining this and 4.

For example,. Moreover, the corresponding Laplacian comparison theorem still holds [ 6 ]. So the proof is omitted here. Corollary 4. It is well known that.

Remark 4. In [ 15 ], Milnor proved that the fundamental group of a compact Riemannian manifold of negative sectional curvature has exponential growth.

Then this result was generalized to the case of negative Ricci curvature and nonpositive sectional curvature in [ 16 ] and [ 17 ]. The key point of the proof is to give a lower bound estimate for the volume of the geodesic balls of the universal covering space. In [ 3 ] and [ 4 ], the results were also generalized to the Finsler setting.
