Abstract

This short review is concerned with real finite-dimensional Finsler manifolds (M,F) with Finsler structures F:TM-->[0,infty) that satisfy the Landsberg conditions. In particular this includes the case of Berwald manifolds since their Chern connections on the pullback of TM are fibre-independent. The aim is to provide an annotated collection of references to geometric results that seem important in the study of Landsberg spaces and to suggest some areas for further work in this context.
