A characterization of the Riemann extension in terms of harmonicity

Cornelia-Livia Bejan, Şemsi Eken (2017)

Czechoslovak Mathematical Journal

If ( M , ) is a manifold with a symmetric linear connection, then T * M can be endowed with the natural Riemann extension g ¯ (O. Kowalski and M. Sekizawa (2011), M. Sekizawa (1987)). Here we continue to study the harmonicity with respect to g ¯ initiated by C. L. Bejan and O. Kowalski (2015). More precisely, we first construct a canonical almost para-complex structure 𝒫 on ( T * M , g ¯ ) and prove that 𝒫 is harmonic (in the sense of E. García-Río, L. Vanhecke and M. E. Vázquez-Abal (1997)) if and only if g ¯ reduces to the...

A class of metrics on tangent bundles of pseudo-Riemannian manifolds

H. M. Dida, A. Ikemakhen (2011)

Archivum Mathematicum

We provide the tangent bundle T M of pseudo-Riemannian manifold ( M , g ) with the Sasaki metric g s and the neutral metric g n . First we show that the holonomy group H s of ( T M , g s ) contains the one of ( M , g ) . What allows us to show that if ( T M , g s ) is indecomposable reducible, then the basis manifold ( M , g ) is also indecomposable-reducible. We determine completely the holonomy group of ( T M , g n ) according to the one of ( M , g ) . Secondly we found conditions on the base manifold under which ( T M , g s ) ( respectively ( T M , g n ) ) is Kählerian, locally symmetric or Einstein...

A complete classification of four-dimensional paraKähler Lie algebras

Giovanni Calvaruso (2015)

Complex Manifolds

We consider paraKähler Lie algebras, that is, even-dimensional Lie algebras g equipped with a pair (J, g), where J is a paracomplex structure and g a pseudo-Riemannian metric, such that the fundamental 2-form Ω(X, Y) = g(X, JY) is symplectic. A complete classification is obtained in dimension four.

A new characterization of r -stable hypersurfaces in space forms

H. F. de Lima, M. A. Velásquez (2011)

Archivum Mathematicum

In this paper we study the r -stability of closed hypersurfaces with constant r -th mean curvature in Riemannian manifolds of constant sectional curvature. In this setting, we obtain a characterization of the r -stable ones through of the analysis of the first eigenvalue of an operator naturally attached to the r -th mean curvature.

A stochastic approach to relativistic diffusions

Ismaël Bailleul (2010)

Annales de l'I.H.P. Probabilités et statistiques

A new class of relativistic diffusions encompassing all the previously studied examples has recently been introduced in the article of C. Chevalier and F. Debbasch (J. Math. Phys. 49 (2008) 043303), both in a heuristic and analytic way. A stochastic approach of these processes is proposed here, in the general framework of lorentzian geometry. In considering the dynamics of the random motion in strongly causal spacetimes, we are able to give a simple definition of the one-particle distribution function...
