Abstract

Dually flat Finsler metrics arise from information geometry which has attracted some geometers and statisticians. In this paper, we study dually flat general spherically symmetric Finsler metrics which are defined by a Euclidean metric and two related 1-forms. We give the equivalent conditions for those metrics to be locally dually flat. By solving the equivalent equations, a group of new locally dually flat Finsler metrics is constructed.
