Isometric, holomorphic and symplectic reflections
- 40 Downloads
As an extension of local geodesic symmetries we study here local reflections with respect to a topologically embedded submanifoldP in a Riemannian manifold (M, g). First we derive a criterion for isometric reflections. Then we study holomorphic and symplectic reflections on an almost Hermitian manifold. In particular we focus on the influence of these reflections on the intrinsic and extrinsic geometry of the submanifold. Finally we treat these three kinds of reflections and their relationship when the ambient manifold is a locally Hermitian symmetric space. The results are derived by the use of Jacobi vector fields.
