Title:Riemannian Manifolds with Multiple Contact Metric Structures
Seminar:Symplectic Topology Seminar
Speaker:Philippe Rukimbira, Florida International University
Abstract:
Abstract: If two contact forms are joined by a horizontal homotopy of contact forms, then they are isotopic. This is the case for any two sasakian forms in a 3-sasakian structure. If two K-contact forms share the same adapted metric on a closed manifold, then, under some constant angle condition, either both forms are sasakian or none is. This angular condition may be dropped in dimensions 4n+1.
