This chapter presents the necessary foundational material on almost contact, contact, and metric contact structures. The key result is an orbifold version of the famous Boothby-Wang fibration. An introduction of a compatible Riemannian metric naturally leads to the definition of K-contact and Sasakian structures introduced at the very end.

Keywords:   almost contact structure, Boothby-Wang fibration, contact structure, metric contact structure, Sasakian structure, K-contact structure
