Sasakian Geometry

Oxford University Press

This chapter begins the study of Sasakian geometry, where all important structure theorems are presented. It then gathers all the results concerning the geometry, topology, and curvature properties of both K-contact and Sasakian manifolds. The relation between Sasakian and algebraic geometry is stressed, as well as important invariants such as the basic cohomology groups, and the basic first Chern class that are associated to certain spaces of Sasakian structures. A main tool used in the text is the transverse Yau Theorem due to El Kacimi-Alaoui.

Keywords:   algebraic geometry, basic cohomology, basic first Chern class, K-contact manifolds, Sasakian manifolds, Sasakian structures, spaces of Sasakian structures, transverse Yau Theorem
