Negative ξ–sectional Curvature

  • David E. Blair
Part of the Progress in Mathematics book series (PM, volume 203)


In this chapter we introduce some special directions that belong to the contact subbundle of a contact metric manifold with negative sectional curvature for plane sections containing the characteristic vector field. We also discuss in this chapter some questions concerning Anosov and conformally Anosov flows.
