On almost cosymplectic (−1, μ, 0)-spaces

Piotr Dacko / Zbigniew Olszak
Published Online: 2005-06-01 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.2478/BF02479207


In our previous paper, almost cosymplectic (κ, μ, ν)-spaces were defined as the almost cosymplectic manifolds whose structure tensor fields satisfy a certain special curvature condition. Amongst other results, it was proved there that any almost cosymplectic (κ, μ, ν)-space can be $$\mathcal{D}$$ -homothetically deformed to an almost cosymplectic −1, μ′, 0)-space. In the present paper, a complete local description of almost cosymplectic (−1, μ, 0)-speces is established: “models” of such spaces are constructed, and it is noted that a given almost cosymplectic (−1, μ 0)-space is locally isomorphic to a corresponding model. In the case when μ is constant, the models can be constructed on the whole of ℝ2n+1 and it is shown that they are left invariant with respect to Lie group actions.
