Abstract

We propose to investigate some global aspects of Finsler and Lorentziangeometry and the interplay between them. The problems are structured in twodifferent types. The first type is concerned with different aspects of (semi)-Randers spaces and the links with stationary space-times in the framework ofLorentzian geometry. The second type of problems concern Finsler geometry.In particular we would like to investigate a generalization of the Gauss-Bonnetformula for general Finsler structures and provide a suitable theory for theRicci flow in Finsler geometry.
