摘要  Every Finsler metric on a differential manifold induces a spray. The converse is not true. Therefore it is one of the most fundamental problems in spray geometry to determine whether a spray is induced by a Finsler metric which is regular, but not necessary positive definite. This problem is called inverse problem.
In this lecture,we discuss inverse problem of sprays with scalar curvature. In particular, we show that if such a spray $G$ on a manifold is of vanishing $H$-curvature, but $G$ has not isotropic curvature, then $G$ is not induced by any (not necessary positive definite) Finsler metric. We also find infinitely many sprays on an open domain $U\subset\mathbb{R}^n$ with scalar curvature and vanishing $H$-curvature, but these sprays have no isotropic curvature. This contrasts sharply with the situation in Finsler geometry.
