Abstract

We give an explicit construction of polynomial (\emph{of arbitrary degree}) $(\alpha,\beta)$-metrics with scalar flag curvature and determine their scalar flag curvature. These Finsler metrics contain all non-trivial projectively flat $(\alpha,\beta)$-metrics of constant flag curvature.
Keywords: Finsler metric, scalar curvature, projective flatness Finsler metric, scalar curvature, projective flatness
