Title: Finsler-Lagrange geometry and its applications - a brief review
Speaker: Nicoleta Voicu (University of Brasov, Rumania)
Abstract: Finsler-Lagrange geometries are a generalization of Riemannian geometry, obtained by allowing the metric tensor to depend not only on the points of the manifold under discussion, but also on a tangent vector at each of these points. We present here in brief the specific features of these geometries together with some of their applications - with a special focus on classical field theories - and the surrounding open questions.
