Differentiable Distance Spaces

The distance function $${\varrho(p, q) ({\rm or} d(p, q))}$$ϱ(p,q)(ord(p,q)) of a distance space (general metric space) is not differentiable in general. We investigate such distance spaces over

On projectively flat Finsler spaces

First we present a short overview of the long history of projectively flat Finsler spaces. We give a simple and quite elementary proof of the already known condition for the projective flatness, and

Finsler geometry in the tangent bundle

Linear and metrical connections of a Riemannian space, whose indicatrices are ellipsoids, are established in the tangent bundle. lndicatrices of Finsler spaces are smooth, starshaped and convex

Approximating geodesics via random points

Given a `cost' functional $F$ on paths $\gamma$ in a domain $D\subset\mathbb{R}^d$, in the form $F(\gamma) = \int_0^1 f(\gamma(t),\dot\gamma(t))dt$, it is of interest to approximate its minimum cost

Stability of the optimal values under small perturbations of the constraint set

This paper discusses a general and useful stability principle which, roughly speaking, says that given a uniformly continuous function defined on an arbitrary metric space, if the function is bounded

Raychaudhuri equation and singularity theorems in Finsler spacetimes

The Raychaudhuri equation and its consequences for chronality are studied in the context of Finsler spacetimes. It is proved that the notable singularity theorems of Lorentzian geometry extend to the

Point Finsler spaces with metrical linear connections

We present a geometric construction of and constructive investigations in Finsler spaces ˜ F n = (M; ˜ L) whose indicatrices ˜ I(x) are ane images of a single indicatrix: ˜ I(x) = (x)I0. These are

A note on the Gauss-Bonnet theorem for Finsler spaces

Exactly fifty years ago, one of us gave a proof of the Gauss-Bonnet formula for Riemannian manifolds by the method of transgression ([Chl], [Ch2]), and introduced a 'total curvature' H whose

On the foundations of calculus of variations

The subject of this paper will be variational problems fF(x, t)dt = min in parameter form with fixed endpoints. The existence of rectifiable minimizing arcs has been proved under exceedingly general

The local triangle axiom in topology and domain theory

We introduce a general notion of distance in weakly separated topological spaces. Our approach differs from existing ones since we do not assume the reflexivity axiom in general. We demonstrate that
