## Abstract

Let \(\pi :{\mathbb {P}}({\mathcal {O}}(0)\oplus {\mathcal {O}}(k))\rightarrow {\mathbb {P}}^{n-1}\) be a projective bundle over \({\mathbb {P}}^{n-1}\) with \(1\le k \le n-1\). We denote \({\mathbb {P}}({\mathcal {O}}(0)\oplus {\mathcal {O}}(k))\) by \(N_{k}^{n}\) and endow it with the *U*(*n*)-invariant gradient shrinking Kähler Ricci soliton structure constructed by Cao (Elliptic and parabolic methods in geometry (Minneapolis, MN, 1994), A K Peters, Wellesley, 1996) and Koiso (Recent topics in differential and analytic geometry. Advanced studies in pure mathematics, Boston, 1990). In this paper, we show that lens space \(L(k\, ;1)(r)\) with radius *r* embedded in \(N_{k}^{n}\) is a self-similar solution. We also prove that there exists a pair of critical radii \(r_{1}<r_{2}\), which satisfies the following. The lens space \(L(k\, ;1)(r)\) is a self-shrinker if \(r<r_{2}\) and self-expander if \(r_{2}<r\), and the Ricci-mean curvature flow emanating from \(L(k\, ;1)(r)\) collapses to the 0-section of \(\pi \) if \(r<r_{1}\) and to the \(\infty \)-section of \(\pi \) if \(r_{1}<r\). This paper gives explicit examples of Ricci-mean curvature flows.
