Projective homogeneity

  • Fabio Podestá


We consider aC∞ simply connected manifoldM endowed with a projective structureP and under an additional hypothesis on the projective curvature tensor, we find necessary and sufficient conditions in order thatM turns out to be a reductive homogeneous spaceG/H whereG is a Lie group acting onM as a group of automorphisms ofP.
