Does anyone know what is the flag curvature in Finsler geometry? I looked for this definition, but I don't find any answer.

    $\begingroup$ If you have access to "An Introduction to Riemann-Finsler Geometry" by Bao, Chern and Shen, it is defined on pages 68-69 there. $\endgroup$ – MonadBoy Jun 22 '16 at 18:41

    $\begingroup$ Have a look in here, at the 11th page (the page numbered 207), section number 1.2: library.msri.org/books/Book50/files/06BR.pdf Pay attention to figure 1.2 in particular for some visual intuition. $\endgroup$ – MonadBoy Jun 22 '16 at 18:46
