Sabau, Sorin V. (ed.) et al., Finsler geometry, Sapporo 2005. In memory of Makoto Matsumoto. Proceedings of the 40th Finsler symposium on Finsler geometry, Sapporo, Japan, September 6–10, 2005. Tokyo: Mathematical Society of Japan (ISBN 978-4-931469-42-6/hbk). Advanced Studies in Pure Mathematics 48, 343-373 (2007).
In the framework of complex Finsler geometry, the author studies the Chern-Finsler connection \(\nabla\) and outlines its applications. The main addressed issues are: (i) the ampleness of holomorphic vector bundles over compact complex manifolds – based on the study [S. Kobayashi, Nagoya Math. J. 57, 153–166 (1975; Zbl 0326.32016)], (ii) the characterization of a certain class of complex Finsler metrics in terms the torsion and curvature of \(\nabla\), and (iii) the characterization of Finsler-Kähler manifolds in terms of the Cartan connection naturally induced from \(\nabla\) on the real tangent space of the manifold.
