Affine connections on almost para-cosymplectic manifolds

  • Adara M. Blaga


Identities for the curvature tensor of the Levi-Cività connection on an almost para-cosymplectic manifold are proved. Elements of harmonic theory for almost product structures are given and a Bochner-type formula for the leaves of the canonical foliation is established.
