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.

Abstract: Let $(M,\phi,\xi,\eta,g)$ be a three-dimensional Kenmotsu manifold. In this paper, we prove that the triple $(g,V,\lambda)$ on $M$ is a $*$-Ricci soliton if and only if $M$ is locally isometric to the hyperbolic 3-space $\mathbf{H}^3(-1)$ and $\lambda=0$. Moreover, if $g$ is a gradient $*$-Ricci soliton, then the potential vector field coincides with the Reeb vector field. We also show that the metric of a coKahler 3-manifold is a $*$-Ricci soliton if and only if it is a Ricci soliton.

Abstract: In this paper, we study an almost coKahler manifold admitting certain metrics such as $$*$$
-Ricci solitons, satisfying the critical point equation (CPE) or Bach flat. First, we consider a coKahler 3-manifold (M, g) admitting a $$*$$
-Ricci soliton (g, X) and we show in this case that either M is locally flat or X is an infinitesimal contact transformation. Next, we study non-coKahler $$(\kappa ,\mu )$$
-almost coKahler metrics as CPE metrics and prove that such a g cannot be a solution of CPE with non-trivial function f. Finally, we prove that a $$(\kappa , \mu )$$
-almost coKahler manifold (M, g) is coKahler if either M admits a divergence free Cotton tensor or the metric g is Bach flat. In contrast to this, we show by a suitable example that there are Bach flat almost coKahler manifolds which are non-coKahler.

Abstract: Let $$(M^{2n+1},\phi ,\xi ,\eta ,g)$$
be a non-Kenmotsu almost Kenmotsu $$(k,\mu )'$$
-manifold. If the metric g represents a Yamabe soliton, then either $$M^{2n+1}$$
is locally isometric to the product space $$\mathbb {H}^{n+1}(-4)\times \mathbb {R}^n$$
or $$\eta $$
is a strict infinitesimal contact transformation. The later case can not occur if a Yamabe soliton is replaced by a gradient Yamabe soliton. Some corollaries of this theorem are given and an example illustrating this theorem is constructed.
