Physics , 1994, DOI: 10.1088/0305-4470/27/23/028
Abstract: The number of functionally independent scalar invariants of arbitrary order of a generic pseudo--Riemannian metric on an $n$--dimensional manifold is determined.
Pseudo-conformal quaternionic CR structure on (4n+3)-dimensional manifolds  [PDF]
Dmitri Alekseevsky,Yoshinobu Kamishima
Mathematics , 2005,
Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to introduce a geometric structure called pseudo-conformal quaternionic CR structure on a (4n+3)-dimensional mamnifold and then exhibit a quaternionic analogue of Chern-Moser's CR structure and uniformization.
Poisson manifolds with compatible pseudo-metric and pseudo-Riemannian Lie algebras  [PDF]
Mohamed Boucetta
Mathematics , 2002,
Abstract: The notion of Poisson manifold with compatible pseudo-metric was introduced by the author in [1]. In this paper, we introduce a new class of Lie algebras which we call a pseudo-Rieamannian Lie algebras. The two notions are strongly related: we prove that a linear Poisson structure on the dual of a Lie algebra has a compatible pseudo-metric if and only if the Lie algebra is a pseudo-Riemannian Lie algebra, and that the Lie algebra obtained by linearizing at a point a Poisson manifold with compatible pseudo-metric is a pseudo-Riemannian Lie algebra. Furthermore, we give some properties of the symplectic leaves of such manifolds, and we prove that every Poisson manifold with compatible metric (every Riemann-Lie algebra) is unimodular. As a final, we classify all pseudo-Riemannian Lie algebras of dimension 2 and 3.
Classification of homogeneous Einstein metrics on pseudo-hyperbolic spaces  [PDF]
Gabriel Baditoiu
Mathematics , 2013,
Abstract: We classify the effective and transitive actions of a Lie group G on an n-dimensional non-degenerate hyperboloid (also called real pseudo-hyperbolic space), under the assumption that G is a closed, connected Lie subgroup of an indefinite special orthogonal group. Under the same assumption on G, we also obtain that any G-homogeneous Einstein pseudo-Riemannian metric on a real, complex or quaternionic pseudo-hyperbolic space, or on a para-complex or para-quaternionic projective space is homothetic to either the canonical metric or the Einstein metric of the canonical variation of a Hopf pseudo-Riemannian submersion.
Interpolation of geometric structures compatible with a pseudo Riemannian metric  [PDF]
Edison Alberto Fernández-Culma,Yamile Godoy,Marcos Salvai
Mathematics , 2015,
Abstract: Let (M, g) be a pseudo Riemannian manifold. We consider four geometric structures on M compatible with g: two almost complex and two almost product structures satisfying additionally certain integrability conditions. For instance, if r is a product structure and symmetric with respect to g, then r induces a pseudo Riemannian product structure on M. Sometimes the integrability condition is expressed by the closedness of an associated two-form: if j is almost complex on M and {\omega}(x, y) = g(jx, y) is symplectic, then M is almost pseudo K\"ahler. Now, product, complex and symplectic structures on M are trivial examples of generalized (para)complex structures in the sense of Hitchin. We use the latter in order to define the notion of interpolation of geometric structures compatible with g. We also compute the typical fibers of the twistor bundles of the new structures and give examples for M a Lie group with a left invariant metric.
Semi-Riemannian submersions with totally geodesic fibres  [PDF]
Gabriel Baditoiu
Mathematics , 2000,
Abstract: We classify semi-Riemannian submersions with connected totally geodesic fibres from a real pseudo-hyperbolic space onto a semi-Riemannian manifold under the assumption that the dimension of the fibres is less than or equal to three and the metrics induced on fibres are negative definite. Also, we obtain the classification of semi-Riemannian submersions with connected complex totally geodesic fibres from a complex pseudo-hyperbolic space onto a semi-Riemannian manifold under the assumption that the dimension of the fibres is less than or equal to two and the metric induced on fibres are negative definite. We prove that there are no semi-Riemannian submersions with connected quaternionic fibres from a quaternionic pseudo-hyperbolic space onto a Riemannian manifold.
The decomposition of a Lie group with a left invariant pseudo-Riemannian metric and the uniqueness  [PDF]
Zhiqi Chen,Ke Liang,Mingming Ren
Mathematics , 2011,
Abstract: In this paper, we discuss the decomposition of a Lie group with a left invariant pseudo-Riemannian metric and the uniqueness. In fact, it is a decomposition of a Lie group into totally geodesic sub-manifolds which is different from the De Rham decomposition on a Lie group. As an application, we give a decomposition of a Lie group with a left invariant pseudo-Riemannian Einstein metric, and prove that the decomposition is unique up to the order of the parts in the decomposition.
The algebra of parallel endomorphisms of a germ of pseudo-Riemannian metric  [PDF]
Charles Boubel
Mathematics , 2012,
Abstract: On a (pseudo-)Riemannian manifold (M,g), some fields of endomorphisms i.e. sections of End(TM) may be parallel for g. They form an associative algebra A, which is also the commutant of the holonomy group of g. As any associative algebra, A is the sum of its radical and of a semi-simple algebra S. We show in arXiv:1402.6642 that S may be of eight different types, including the generic type S=R.Id, and the K\"ahler and hyperk\"ahler types where S is respectively isomorphic to the complex field C or to the quaternions H. We show here that for any self adjoint nilpotent element N of the commutant of such an S in End(TM), the set of germs of metrics such that A contains S and {N} is non-empty. We parametrise it. Generically, the holonomy algebra of those metrics is the full commutant of $S\cup\{N\}$ in O(g). Apart from some "degenerate" cases, the algebra A is then $S \oplus (N)$, where (N) is the ideal spanned by N. To prove it, we introduce an analogy with complex Differential Calculus, the ring R[X]/(X^n) replacing the field C. This describes totally the local situation when the radical of A is principal and consists of self adjoint elements. We add a glimpse on the case where this radical is not principal.
Space-like and time-like hyperspheres in real pseudo-Riemannian 4-spaces with almost contact B-metric structures  [PDF]
Hristo Manev
Mathematics , 2015,
Abstract: There are considered 4-dimensional pseudo-Riemannian spaces with inner products of signature (3,1) and (2,2). The objects of investigation are space-like and time-like hyperspheres in the respective cases. These hypersurfaces are equipped with almost contact B-metric structures. The constructed manifolds are characterized geometrically.
A new construction of homogeneous quaternionic manifolds and related geometric structures  [PDF]
Vicente Cortes
Mathematics , 1999,
Abstract: Let V be the pseudo-Euclidean vector space of signature (p,q), p>2 and W a module over the even Clifford algebra Cl^0 (V). A homogeneous quaternionic manifold (M,Q) is constructed for any spin(V)-equivariant linear map \Pi : \wedge^2 W \to V. If the skew symmetric vector valued bilinear form \Pi is nondegenerate then (M,Q) is endowed with a canonical pseudo-Riemannian metric g such that (M,Q,g) is a homogeneous quaternionic pseudo-K\"ahler manifold. The construction is shown to have a natural mirror in the category of supermanifolds. In fact, for any spin(V)-equivariant linear map \Pi : Sym^2 W \to V a homogeneous quaternionic supermanifold (M,Q) is constructed and, moreover, a homogeneous quaternionic pseudo-K\"ahler supermanifold (M,Q,g) if the symmetric vector valued bilinear form \Pi is nondegenerate.
