The Ricci tensor of almost parahermitian manifolds

15 Oct 2017  ·  Conti Diego, Rossi Federico A. ·

We study the pseudoriemannian geometry of almost parahermitian manifolds, obtaining a formula for the Ricci tensor of the Levi-Civita connection. The formula uses the intrinsic torsion of an underlying SL(n,R)-structure; we express it in terms of exterior derivatives of some appropriately defined differential forms... As an application, we construct Einstein and Ricci-flat examples on Lie groups. We disprove the parak\"ahler version of the Goldberg conjecture, and obtain the first compact examples of a non-flat, Ricci-flat nearly parak\"ahler structure. We study the paracomplex analogue of the first Chern class in complex geometry, which obstructs the existence of Ricci-flat parak\"ahler metrics. read more
