Sorin Sabau (Tokai Univ.) The global behaviour of geodesics on Finsler surfaces.
LJAD (Nice), Nov. 7 2017
We will present some basic facts on the local and global geometry of geodesics on Finsler surfaces. These properties are closely related to the notions of conjugate and cut locus. In particular, we will show how the global form of the geodesics can be obtained in the case of some special Finsler metrics and how its cut locus can be determined. The case of a Randers rotational sphere of revolution will be explained in detail.
