RICCI SOLITONS AND CONTACT METRIC MANIFOLDS

  • AMALENDU GHOSH (a1)

Abstract

We study on a contact metric manifold M2n+1(ϕ, ξ, η, g) such that g is a Ricci soliton with potential vector field V collinear with ξ at each point under different curvature conditions: (i) M is of pointwise constant ξ-sectional curvature, (ii) M is conformally flat.
