invite you to take part in the
VIIIth International Conference “Finsler Extensions of Relativity Theory” (FERT-2012)

The previous FERT Conferences took place in Egypt (2005, 2006, 2008), in Russia (2004, 2007, 2009, 2010) and in Romania (2011).
The materials of these events – the special volumes of the journal “Hyper Complex Numbers in Geometry and Physics”, videos and papers – can be found on the web-sites: (Russian) and on (English)

Topics to be discussed during the conference

1. Rashevski’s polymetric geometry.
2. Symmetries of Finsler spaces.
3. Various Finsler metrics and corresponding spaces.
4. Poly-linear symmetrical forms of n vectors as Finsler generalizations of scalar product.
5. Linear Finsler spaces and their relations with hypercomplex numbers.
6. Isometric, conformal, and other metrically selected transformations of Finsler spaces.
7. Finsler spaces and n-ary operations.
8. Finsler extensions of Special and General Relativity Theory.
9. Algebraic fractals over hypercomplex numbers and Finsler spaces related to them.
10. Experimental research and astrophysical observations that could prove the necessity of Finsler extensions of the geometry describing the real space-time.
11. Hypercomplex numbers in Geometry, Physics and Biology.

The organizers are going to pay special attention to geometries with metric functions that have the form of symmetrical polynomials of four variables of degree three and four (Chernov and Berwald-Moor metrics). This is due to the fact that the quadratic form which is characteristic to the space-time of the Special Relativity (Minkowski metric) is, in certain bases, a symmetrical polynomial of four variables degree two. There is no doubt that all these three geometries are akin to each other, and this presumes the possibility to use them together and not separately for the physical applications.
Besides, this Conference will essentially differ from the previous ones in the following way: the organizers are going to bring together not only mathematicians and theoretical physicists but also experimenters who work with phenomena that can be hardly explained or even cannot be explained in frames of the traditional pseudo-Riemannian approach to the real space-time.

The accommodation is planned in “Sosnovy Bor” hotel ($100 per night) and also in the “Forest Lake” hostel of the Municipal Education center in Fryazino (free for participants).

Working languages of the Conference
Russian and English.

The papers will be published, after a selection process, in the journal “Hyper Complex Numbers in Geometry and Physics”.
