A characterization of n-dimensional hypersurfaces in R n + 1 with commuting curvature operators

Yulian T. Tsankov (2005)

Banach Center Publications

Let Mⁿ be a hypersurface in R n + 1 . We prove that two classical Jacobi curvature operators J x and J y commute on Mⁿ, n > 2, for all orthonormal pairs (x,y) and for all points p ∈ M if and only if Mⁿ is a space of constant sectional curvature. Also we consider all hypersurfaces with n ≥ 4 satisfying the commutation relation ( K x , y K z , u ) ( u ) = ( K z , u K x , y ) ( u ) , where K x , y ( u ) = R ( x , y , u ) , for all orthonormal tangent vectors x,y,z,w and for all points p ∈ M.
