Abstract : The theory of $m$-th root metric has been developed by H. Shimada [8], and applied to the biology [1] as an ecological metric. The purpose of this paper is to introduce the $m$-th root Finsler metrics which admit $(\alpha,\beta)$-types. Especially in cases of $m=3, 4$, we give the condition for Finsler spaces with such metrics to be locally Minkowski spaces.
Keywords : Berwald space, locally Minkowski, $m$-th root metric
