# Finsler space

From Encyclopedia of Mathematics

A generalization of a Riemannian space. It is a space in small regions of which the Minkowski geometry approximately holds. A Finsler space is essentially the same as a Finsler manifold, that is, a differentiable manifold supplied with a Finsler metric.
