On Einstein Matsumoto metrics

By Yi-Bing Shen and Xiaoling Zhang


In this paper, the necessary and sufficient conditions for Matsumoto metrics $F=\frac{\alpha^2}{\alpha-\beta}$ to be Einstein are given. It is shown that if the length of $\beta$ with respect to $\alpha$ is constant, then the Matsumoto metric $F$ is an Einstein metric if and only if $\alpha$ is Ricci-flat and $\beta$ is parallel with respect to $\alpha$. A nontrivial example of Ricci flat Matsumoto metrics is given
