\(L^\mathrm{2}\)-transverse conformal Killing forms on complete foliated manifolds



In this article, we study the \(L^2\)-transverse conformal Killing forms on complete foliated Riemannian manifolds and prove some vanishing theorems. Also, we study the same problems on Kähler foliations with a complete bundle-like metric.
