||Cohomogeneity one Randers metrics|
An action of a Lie group $G$ on a smooth manifold $M$ is called
cohomogeneity one if the orbit space $M/G$ is of dimension $1$.
A Finsler metric $F$ on $M$ is called invariant if $F$ is
invariant under the action of $G$. In this paper,
we study invariant
Randers metrics on cohomogeneity one manifolds. We first give a
sufficient and necessary condition for the existence of invariant
Randers metrics on cohomogeneity one manifolds. Then we obtain
some results on invariant Killing vector fields on the
cohomogeneity one manifolds and use that to deduce some
sufficient and necessary condition for a cohomogeneity one
Randers metric to be Einstein.

||Randers Metrics of Constant Scalar Curvature|
Randers metrics are a special class of Finsler metrics. Every Randers
metric can be expressed in terms of a Riemannian metric and a vector
field via Zermelo navigation.
In this paper, we show that a Randers metric has constant scalar
curvature if the Riemannian metric has constant scalar curvature and
the vector field is homothetic.
Keywords:Randers metrics, scalar curvature, S-curvature

||A Note on Randers Metrics of Scalar Flag Curvature|
Some families of Randers metrics of scalar flag curvature are
studied in this paper. Explicit examples that are neither locally
projectively flat nor of isotropic $S$-curvature are given. Certain
Randers metrics with Einstein $\alpha$ are considered and proved to
be complex. Three dimensional Randers manifolds, with $\alpha$
having constant scalar curvature, are studied.
