Finsler Geometry by David Dai-Wai Bao, , available at Book Depository with free delivery worldwide.1/5(1). rent book. While the previous book was focused on biodynamic applica-tions, the core applications of the new book are in the realm of modern theo-retical physics, mainly following its central line: Einstein–Feynman–Witten. Other applications include (among others): control theory, robotics, neu-.

Subjects treated include higher order Lagrange geometry, the recent theory of -Lagrange manifolds, electromagnetic theory and neurophysiology. This book is recommended as a (supplementary) text in graduate courses in differential geometry and its applications, and will also be of interest to physicists and mathematical biologists. Preface Since Finsler geometry, Lagrange geometry and their applications to physics and biology, have been intensive1y studied in the context of a 5-year program called.

Projective Finsler geometry and Wagner connection theory are used to model time-sequencing changes in growth and development. Some direct applications to fossil measurements in paleontology are also described. For geometers, physicists and theoretical (marine) biologists, the book can also be recommended as a supplementary graduate by: This book begins with a new approach to the geometry of pseudo-Finsler manifolds.

It also discusses the geometry of pseudo-Finsler manifolds and presents a comparison between the induced and the intrinsic Finsler connections.

Viewing Finsler spaces as regular metric spaces, the author discusses the problems from the modern metric geometry point of view. The book begins with the basics on Finsler spaces, including the notions of geodesics and curvatures, then deals with basic comparison theorems on metrics and measures and their applications to the Levy concentration theory of regular metric measure spaces Cited by: Roman S.

Wilkens – Preface for “Applications of Finsler geometry to control theory” [MR ]. The present book has been written by two mathematicians and one physicist: a pure mathematician specializing in Finsler geometry (Makoto Matsumoto), one working in mathematical biology (Peter Antonelli), and a mathematical physicist specializing in information thermodynamics (Roman Ingarden).

The second known application of Finsler geometry towards finite deformation of solid bodies appears in Chapter 8 of the book of Bejancu [ 30 ]. Content in [ 30 ] extends and formalizes the description of Ikeda [ 35 ] using concepts of tensor calculus on the fiber bundle of a (generalized pseudo-) Finsler by: 9.

After a review of necessary mathematical definitions and derivations, prior work involving application of Finsler geometry in continuum mechanics of solids is reviewed. A new theoretical description of continua with microstructure is then outlined, merging concepts from Finsler geometry and phase field theories of materials science.

In mathematics, particularly differential geometry, a Finsler manifold is a differentiable manifold M where a (possibly asymmetric) Minkowski functional F(x,−) is provided on each tangent space TxM, that enables one to define the length of any smooth curve γ: [a,b] → M as Finsler.
