Geometry of Finsler subspaces. I. (English) Zbl 0622.53018
Finsler subspaces $$F^ m$$ of a Finsler space $$F^ n$$ were studied by many geometers: E. Cartan, M. Haimovici, E. T. Davies, M. Matsumoto etc. The reviewer and the author [ibid. 30, No.4, 56-59 (1984; Zbl 0577.53029)], have given a complete description of these spaces in the case when $$F^ m$$ has the so-called ”property of horizontality”.
In the present paper the author extends this study to the general case using an arbitrary Finsler connection in $$F^ n$$ and the induced Finsler connections on some vector bundles associated to $$F^ m$$ in $$F^ n$$. The Gauss-Weingarten formulas and Gauss-Codazzi equations for Finsler subspaces $$F^ m$$ in a Finsler space $$F^ n$$ are established.
