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.

Einstein-Like Lorentz Metrics and Three-Dimensional Curvature Homogeneity of Order One
We completely classify three-dimensional Lorentz manifolds, curvature homogeneous up to order one, equipped with Einstein-like metrics. New examples arise with respect to both homogeneous examples and three-dimensional Lorentz manifolds admitting a degenerate parallel null line field.

The $\eta$-invariants of cusped hyperbolic $3$-manifolds
In this paper, we define the $\eta$-invariant for a cusped hyperbolic $3$-manifold and discuss some of its applications. Such an invariant detects the chirality of a hyperbolic knot or link and can be used to distinguish many links with homeomorphic complements.
