in which A and B are two points on the left and right boundaries, L(A), L(B) are the space-like geodesic that go through points A and B, respectively, and L(A [union] B) is the geodesic length cross the horizon and connects A and B.
Theorem 1 does not coincide with that of the weighted Riemannian manifold (M, [g.sub.[nabla]r]) since the weighted Ricci curvature [Ric.sub.N](x, y) and Finsler geodesic balls do not coincide with those [Ric.sup.[nabla]r.sub.N][(x, [nabla]r) and Riemannian geodesic balls in weighted Riemannian manifold.
A geodesic path joining x [member of] X to y [member of] X (or, more briefly, a geodesic from x to y) is a map [xi] : R [contains] [0, l] [right arrow] X such that [xi](0) = x, [xi](l) = y, and d([xi](s), [xi](t)) = [absolute value of s - t] for each s, t [member of] [0, l].

A path [gamma] : [0,1] [right arrow] X is called a geodesic if d([gamma](s), [gamma](t)) = |s - t|d([gamma](0), [gamma](1)), for every s,t [member of] [0,1].
In SNA terminology, geodesic refers to the shortest path between a given pair of vertices, and there may exist more than one geodesic.
