"Finsler Geometry: An Approach via Randers Spaces" exclusively deals with a special class of Finsler metrics – Randers metrics, which are defined as the sum of a Riemannian metric and a 1-form. Randers metrics derive from the research on General Relativity Theory and have been applied in many areas of the natural sciences. They can also be naturally deduced as the solution of the Zermelo navigation problem.
