The Binet-Legendre metric in Finsler geometry and some applications
If you have a question about this talk, please contact Dr Maciej Dunajski.
The Binet-Legendre metric is a canonical Riemannian metric associated to a given metric on a given manifold; it has a well controlled behavior under isometries and conformal transformations that makes it an efficient tool to solve problems in Finsler geometry by reducing them to their Riemannian counterpart. In this talk I will survey some recent applications of the Binet-Legendre metrics to solve some specific Finslerian problems
