We study scalar field theory as a generalization of point particle mechanics using the Polyakov action and demonstrate how to extend Lorentzian and Riemannian Eisenhart lifts to the theory in a similar manner. Then, we explore extension of the Randers–Finsler formulation and its principles to the Nambu–Goto action and describe a Jacobi Lagrangian for it.
