Department of Mathematics Minjiang University


We establish some relative volume comparison theorems for extremal volume forms of‎ ‎Finsler manifolds under suitable curvature bounds‎. ‎As their applications‎, ‎we obtain some results on curvature and topology of Finsler manifolds‎. ‎Our results remove the usual assumption on S-curvature that is needed in the literature‎.
