TL;DR: In this paper, the authors considered the case of *-Ricci soliton in the framework of a Kenmotsu manifold and proved that soliton constant λ is zero.

Abstract: Abstract In this paper, we consider *-Ricci soliton in the frame-work of Kenmotsu manifolds. First, we prove that if (M, g) is a Kenmotsu manifold and g is a *-Ricci soliton, then soliton constant λ is zero. For 3-dimensional case, if M admits a *-Ricci soliton, then we show that M is of constant sectional curvature –1. Next, we show that if M admits a *-Ricci soliton whose potential vector field is collinear with the characteristic vector field ξ, then M is Einstein and soliton vector field is equal to ξ. Finally, we prove that if g is a gradient almost *-Ricci soliton, then either M is Einstein or the potential vector field is collinear with the characteristic vector field on an open set of M. We verify our result by constructing examples for both *-Ricci soliton and gradient almost *-Ricci soliton.

TL;DR: In this paper, a 3-dimensional paraSasakian manifold and a conformally flat K-paracontact manifold were studied and it was shown that the conditions Einstein, conformal flat, semi-symmetric, and Ricci semi symmetric are all equivalent.

Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to study 3-dimensional paraSasakian manifold and conformally flat K-paracontact manifold. Moreover, we show that in a K-paracontact manifold the conditions Einstein, conformally flat, semi-symmetric and Ricci semi-symmetric are all equivalent. Finally, compact regular 3-dimensional paraSasakian and conformally flat K-paracontact manifolds are studied.

TL;DR: In this paper, the authors consider the case where the potential vector field is collinear with the characteristic vector field on an open set of manifolds and show that the potential field is equal to the soliton vector field.

Abstract: In this paper, we consider $*$-Ricci soliton in the frame-work of Kenmotsu manifolds. First, we prove that if the metric of a Kenmotsu manifold $M$ is a $*$-Ricci soliton, then soliton constant $\lambda$ is zero. For 3-dimensional case, if $M$ admits a $*$-Ricci soliton, then we show that $M$ is of constant sectional curvature -1. Next, we show that if $M$ admits a $*$-Ricci soliton whose potential vector field is collinear with the characteristic vector field $\xi$, then $M$ is Einstein and soliton vector field is equal to $\xi$. Finally, we prove that if $g$ is a gradient almost $*$-Ricci soliton, then either $M$ is Einstein or the potential vector field is collinear with the characteristic vector field on an open set of $M$. We verify our result by constructing examples for both $*$-Ricci soliton and gradient almost $*$-Ricci soliton.

TL;DR: In this article, it was shown that if the metric g of M is a *-Ricci soliton, then either M is locally isometric to the product ℍn+1(−4)×ℝn or the potential vector field is strict infinitesimal contact transformation.

Abstract: Abstract Let (M, g) be a non-Kenmotsu (κ, μ)′-almost Kenmotsu manifold of dimension 2n + 1. In this paper, we prove that if the metric g of M is a *-Ricci soliton, then either M is locally isometric to the product ℍn+1(−4)×ℝn or the potential vector field is strict infinitesimal contact transformation. Moreover, two concrete examples of (κ, μ)′-almost Kenmotsu 3-manifolds admitting a Killing vector field and strict infinitesimal contact transformation are given.

TL;DR: In this article, a systematic study of Kenmotsu pseudo-metric manifolds is presented, and the Ricci solitons on these manifolds are considered, and necessary and sufficient conditions for them to have constant curvatures are provided.

Abstract: In this paper, a systematic study of Kenmotsu pseudo-metric manifolds are introduced. After studying the properties of this manifolds, we provide necessary and sufficient condition for Kenmotsu pseudo-metric manifold to have constant $\varphi$-sectional curvature, and prove the structure theorem for $\xi$-conformally flat and $\varphi$-conformally flat Kenmotsu pseudo-metric manifolds. Next, we consider Ricci solitons on this manifolds. In particular, we prove that an $\eta$-Einstein Kenmotsu pseudo-metric manifold of dimension higher than 3 admitting a Ricci soliton is Einstein, and a Kenmotsu pseudo-metric 3-manifold admitting a Ricci soliton is of constant curvature $-\varepsilon$.
