Abstract: Continuing Grifone's pioneering work, we present a systematic treatment of some distinguished Finsler connections and some special Finsler manifolds, built on three pillars: the theory of horizontal endomorphisms, the calculus of vector-valued forms and a "tangent bundle version" of the method of moving frames.
Keywords: Horizontal endomorphisms; Cartan tensors; Berwald connection, Cartan connection, Chern-Rund connection; Berwald manifold; locally Minkowski manifold.
