Handbook of Finsler Geometry

Hardback
It was over three years ago, at the annual meeting of the American Ma- ematical Society in San Diego, California, that Dr. Paul Roos of Kluwer asked me to poll Finsler geometers around the world as to their interest in writing a HANDBOOK OF FINSLER GEOMETRY. The result of that query was a resounding a?rmation, and here at long last, is the ?nal result. You have in your hands,the most complete and authoritative exposition of state-of-the-art Finsler geometry that is possible, today. Each of the eleven partsiscompletely independent of the rest, and each has been written with mathematics and science students in mind. These articles are accessible! P. L.
