Minimal Surfaces and Gauss Curvature of Conoid in Fins-ler Spaces with (α, β)-Metrics


In this paper, minimal submanifolds in Finsler spaces with (α, β)-metrics are studied. Especially, helicoids are also minimal in (α, β)-Minkowski spaces. Then the minimal surfaces of conoid in Finsler spaces with (α, β)-metrics are given. Last, the Gauss curvature of the conoid in the 3-dimension Randers-Minkowski space is studied.
