Recently, it is shown that each regular homogeneous Finsler space M admits at least one homogeneous geodesic through any point $$o\in M$$ o ∈ M . The purpose of this article is to study the existence of homogeneous geodesics on singular homogeneous $$(\alpha ,\beta )$$ ( α , β ) -spaces, specially, homogeneous Kropina spaces. We show that any homogeneous Kropina space admits at least one homogeneous geodesic through any point. It is shown that, under some conditions, the same result is true for…
