SummaryMinkowski geometry is studied by the method of moving frames. 
Curve Shortening and the Banchoff–Pohl Inequality in Symmetric Minkowski Geometries
In this paper the classical Banchoff–Pohl inequality, an isoperimetric inequality for nonsimple closed curves in the Euclidean plane, involving the square of the winding number, is generalized to
On Parabolic Trigonometry in a Degenerate Minkowski Plane
A Minkowski plane is considered having a parabola as indicatrix curve and taking for its center the vertex of the parabola causing by this a degeneration of the Minkowski geometry. After a short
Differential geometry of spatial curves for gauges
We derive Frenet-type results and invariants of spatial curves immersed in 3-dimensional generalized Minkowski spaces, i.e., in linear spaces which satisfy all axioms of finite dimensional real
In this paper we give a proof of the Green–Osher inequality in relative geometry using the minimal convex annulus, including the necessary and sufficient condition for the case of equality.
Curves and lattices of points in the minkowski plane
The main goal of this work is to derive an integral formula refering to bounded convex sets (section 3), in order to obtain some results involving lattices of points in the Minkowski plane (seccion
Rotational surfaces in a $3$-dimensional normed space
We study rotational surfaces with constant Minkowski Gaussian curvature and rotational surfaces with constant Minkowski mean curvature in a 3-dimensional normed space with rotationally symmetric
An angle in Minkowski space
Abstract.A new angular measure in Minkowski space is introduced. It is defined for a cone of any dimension, is additive and invariant under invertible linear transformations. For the dimension 2, it

On geodesic curvature in two-dimensional finsler spaces
SummaryInstead of the extremal curvature used by others, a new geodesic curvature for Finsler surfaces is introduced and used tu solve the isoperimetric problem. The relation of this curvature to

The Gauss-Bonnet Theorem leads through well known arguments to the fact that the integral curvature of a two-dimensional closed orientable manifold M of genus p equals 4π(1 — p). This implies, for
A Geometrical Approach to the Second-Order Linear Differential Equation
In this paper various concepts intrinsically defined by the differential equation 1.1 are interpreted geometrically by concepts analogous to those in the Minkowski plane. This is carried out in § 2.

The Isoperimetric Problem in the Minkowski Plane
The slow progress in the theory of Finsler spaces as compared to Riemann spaces is partly due to lack of information regarding the corresponding local, that is the Minkowskian, geometry. Those
Über die Fourierschen Konstanten integrierbarer Funktionen
Im folgenden werde ich den Begriff „integrierbar“ ausschliesslich in dem ursprunglichen Riemann’schen Sinne anwenden.
The foundations of Minkowskian geometry
The explora t ion of Minkowski (or finite dimensional Banach) spaces is a necessary pre l iminary step for any progress in the theory of Finsler spaces 1). T h e y are the local spaces which belong
Nuove formule di Geometria integrale relative agli ovali
Si dimostra, estendendola, una cospicua formula di Geometria integrale per gli ovali, indicata da C.B.S. Cavallin [la (28)]. Si dimostrano, in modo analogo, due nuove relazioni per gli ovali [(48) e

1. The new Theory of Local or Geometrical Probability, so far as it is known, seems to present, in a remarkable degree, the same distinguishing features which characterize those portions of the
