Complete Ricci solitons on Finsler manifolds

  • Behroz Bidabad
  • Mohamad Yar Ahmadi


The geometric flow theory and its applications turned into one of the most intensively developing branches of modern geometry. Here, a brief introduction to Finslerian Ricci flow and their self-similar solutions known as Ricci solitons are given and some recent results are presented. They are a generalization of Einstein metrics and are previously developed by the present authors for Finsler manifolds. In the present work, it is shown that a complete shrinking Ricci soliton Finsler manifold has a finite fundamental group.
