On a k-th Gauduchon almost Hermitian manifold

Masaya Kawamura
From the journal Complex Manifolds


We characterize the k-th Gauduchon condition and by applying its characterization, we reprove that a compact k-th Gauduchon, semi-Kähler manifold becomes quasi-Kähler, which tells us that in particular, a compact almost pluriclosed, semi-Kähler manifold is quasi-Kähler.
