Abstract
In this paper a relationship between concurrent and P-concurrent vector fields in a Finsler space has been established. The present work studies the properties of concurrent vector fields [7] in Definition 1.2. Moreover, paper explains a vector field which we shall call P-concurrent vector field in a Finsler space. It generalizes the concept of concurrent vector field.
