This volume contains surveys and original articles based on the talks given at the 40th Finsler Symposium on Finsler Geometry, held on September 9-10, 2005 at Hokkaido Tokai University, Sapporo, Japan. The symposium was not only a meeting of the Finsler geometers from Japan and abroad but also a commemoration of the late Professor Makoto Matsumoto. The papers included in this volume contain fundamental topics of modern Riemann-Finsler geometry, interesting for specialists in Finsler geometry as well as researchers in Riemannian geometry or other fields of differential geometry and its applications.

Volumes in this series are freely available electronically 5 years post-publication.

Published for the Mathematical Society of Japan by Kinokuniya, Tokyo, and distributed worldwide, except in Japan, by the AMS.


Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in analysis and geometry.
