USA0000-0001-8074-3944Journal Article20210826Ricci curvature is one of the important geometric quantities in Riemann-Finsler geometry. Together with the $S$-curvature, one can define a weighted Ricci curvature for a pair of Finsler metric and a volume form on a manifold. One can build up a bridge from Riemannian geometry to Finsler geometry via geodesic fields. Then one can estimate the Laplacian of a distance function and the mean curvature of a metric sphere under a lower weighted Ricci curvature by applying the results in the Riemannian setting. These estimates also give rise to a volume comparison of Bishop-Gromov type for Finsler metric measure manifolds.https://ajmc.aut.ac.ir/article_4500_fc3d11fc673b4e9a44f3b4e11ecbea4e.pdfAmirkabir University of TechnologyAUT Journal of Mathematics and Computing2783-24492220210901On Finsler warped product metrics with vanishing $E$-curvature137142440810.22060/ajmc.2021.19817.1052ENRanadipGangopadhyayDST-CIMS, Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi-221005, IndiaAnjaliShriwastawaDST-CIMS, Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi-221005, IndiaBankteshwarTiwariDST-CIMS, Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi-221005, India0000-0003-4529-8261Journal Article20210405In this paper, we study Finsler warped product metric recently introduced by P.

The present article provides the necessary notions on tensor spectral data and on the HO-SVD and the Candecomp tensor decompositions, and further study several aspects related to the spectral theory of the main symmetric Finsler tensors, the fundamental and the Cartan tensor. In particular, are addressed two Finsler models used in Langmuir Blodgett Nanotechnology and in Oncology. As well, the HO-SVD and Candecomp decompositions are exemplified for these models and metric extensions of the eigen problem are proposed.https://ajmc.aut.ac.ir/article_4459_947f96ebced3789262a7bcbdaca6241d.pdfAmirkabir University of TechnologyAUT Journal of Mathematics and Computing2783-24492220210901A note on the Yamabe problem of Randers metrics165170445810.22060/ajmc.2021.20199.1056ENBinChenSchool of Mathematical Sciences, Tongji University, Shanghai, China, 200092SiweiLiuSchool of Mathematical Sciences, Tongji University, Shanghai, China, 200092Journal Article20210623The classical Yamabe problem in Riemannian geometry states that every conformal class contains a metric with constant scalar curvature.

ChinaJournal Article20210627This is a survey on some recent progress in homogeneous Finsler geometry. Three topics are discussed, the classification of positively curved homogeneous Finsler spaces, the geometric and topological properties of homogeneous Finsler spaces satisfying $K\geq0$ and the (FP) condition, and the orbit number of prime closed geodesics in a compact homogeneous Finsler manifold. These topics share the same similarity that the same rank inequality, i.e., $\mathrm{rank}G\leq\mathrm{rank}H+1$ for $G/H$ with compact $G$ and $H$, plays an important role. In this survey, we discuss in each topic how the rank inequality is proved, explain its importance, and summarize some relevant results.https://ajmc.aut.ac.ir/article_4454_f4471c6a100c30980422d65f3a987ae1.pdfAmirkabir University of TechnologyAUT Journal of Mathematics and Computing2783-24492220210901Some fundamental problems in global Finsler geometry185198445610.22060/ajmc.2021.20219.1060ENXinyueChengSchool of Mathematical Sciences

Wagner [60]. They are Finsler manifolds admitting linear connections on the base manifold such that the parallel transports preserve the Finslerian length of tangent vectors (compatibility condition). Presenting a panoramic view of the general theory we are going to summarize some special problems and results. Spaces of special metrics are of special interest in the generalized Berwald manifold theory. We discuss the case of generalized Berwald Randers metrics, Finsler surfaces and Finsler manifolds of dimension three. To provide the unicity of the compatible linear connection we are looking for, we introduce the notion of the extremal compatible linear connection minimizing the norm of the torsion tensor point by point. The mathematical formulation is given in terms of a conditional extremum problem for checking the existence of compatible linear connections in general. Explicite computations are presented in the special case of generalized Berwald Randers metrics.https://ajmc.aut.ac.ir/article_4498_279e62c4555c5a7be62e851f1a4ef163.pdfAmirkabir University of TechnologyAUT Journal of Mathematics and Computing2783-24492220210901A survey on unicorns in Finsler geometry239250449910.22060/ajmc.2021.20412.1065ENAkbarTayebiDepartment of Mathematics, Faculty of Science, University of Qom, Qom, IranJournal Article20210815This survey is an inspiration of my joint paper with Behzad Najafi published in Science in China.
