On a conformal Killingp-form in a compact sasakian space

  • Seiichi Yamaguchi


Let M be a compact Sasakian space admitting a conformal Killing p-form u. Then, we show that the associated form ϑ of a conformal Killing form u is a special Killing form with constant 1. Moreover we prove the decomposition theorem of u and seek the condition for M to be a unit sphere.
