Abstract


The \((\alpha,\beta)\)-metric is a Finsler metric which is constructed from a Riemannian metric and a differential 1-form \(\beta\), it has been sometimes treated In theoretical physics. The condition for a Finsler space with an \((\alpha,\beta)\)-metric \(L(\alpha,\beta)\) to be projectively flat was given by matsumoto. The present paper, We discuss the \(r\)-th series \((\alpha, \beta)\)-metric to be projectively flat on the basis of Matsumoto's results.

Keywords


Finsler space; $r$-th series $(\alpha,\beta)$-metric; Projectively flat
