By Demir N. Kupeli

This e-book is an exposition of "Singular Semi-Riemannian Geometry"- the learn of a tender manifold offered with a degenerate (singular) metric tensor of arbitrary signature. the most subject of curiosity is these situations the place the metric tensor is believed to be nondegenerate. within the literature, manifolds with degenerate metric tensors were studied extrinsically as degenerate submanifolds of semi­ Riemannian manifolds. One significant element of this booklet is first to check the intrinsic constitution of a manifold with a degenerate metric tensor after which to check it extrinsically through contemplating it as a degenerate submanifold of a semi-Riemannian manifold. This booklet is split into 3 components. half I offers with singular semi­ Riemannian manifolds in 4 chapters. In bankruptcy I, the linear algebra of indefinite genuine internal product areas is reviewed. mostly, homes of yes geometric tensor fields are received simply from the algebraic perspective with out concerning their geometric foundation. bankruptcy II is dedicated to a overview of covariant spinoff operators in genuine vector bundles. bankruptcy III is the most a part of this e-book the place, intrinsically, the Koszul connection is brought and its curvature identities are bought. In bankruptcy IV, an program of bankruptcy III is made to degenerate submanifolds of semi-Riemannian manifolds and Gauss, Codazzi and Ricci equations are got. half II bargains with singular Kahler manifolds in 4 chapters parallel to half I.

Thus, if X, Y E fTM with Xp = Yp, then (V' xU)(p) = (\7yU)(p). Indeed, let {Zt, ... , Zn} be a local basis frame for TM. Then X and Y locally can be written as X = L:i=t ai Zi and Y = L:i=t bizi, where ai(p) = bi(p) fori= 1,2, .. ,n. Then (\7 xU)P = n n i=l i=l L ai(p)(V' z;U)P = L bi(p)(V' z;U)P = (V'yU)P. Also observe that, the tensor character in the first entry implies that \7U E fA 1 (TM;E). 3 Let M be a manifold. Then the natural covariant derivaN tive operator in the vector bundle MxR over M is defined by \7 x f = X(J), where X E f TM and f E f{M x R) = C 00 (M).

In other words, ( M, g) is stationary if and only if g = '¢* h1, where h1 is a conformal metric tensor to h on H. Now we will discuss the relation between the curvature tensors of ( M, g) and (H,g). 14 Let (M,g) be a semi-Riemannian manifold oftype (p, v, 1J) and let ( H, h) be a nondegenerate semi- Riemannian manifold of type ( v, 1J ). Let 'ljJ : M -----" H be a degenerate fibration of ( M, g) over ( H, h) with g = V'*h. If X E fTM andy E rTM are the lifts of X,Y E rTH along'¢, respectively, then 1/;(V x Y) = V' x Y, where V is the Koszul connection of (M,g) and V' is the Levi-Civita connection of (H,h).

Conversely, suppose Vis a torsion-free semi-Riemannian connection in (TM,g).

Then the unique torsion-free semi-Riemannian connection V in (TM,g) is called the Koszul connection of (M,g). If (M,g) is nondegenerate then the Koszul connection of (M,g) is called the Levi-Civita connection on (M,g).
