Generalized 2-symmetric submanifolds

In this note we give two families of generalized 2-symmetric submanifolds. The first family consists of submanifolds ofRNwhich are mapped into theirselves by the reflection ofRNwith respect to each first normal space and it is characterized in a differentiable way. The second family consists of submanifolds obtained by introducing a homomorphism between two Lie groups associated with symmetricR-spaces. All these submanifolds are mapped into theirselves by the reflection ofRNwith respect to subspaces of the normal spaces which contain the first normal spaces.
