Original Paper


Let \(x: M \rightarrow \mathbb {R}^n\) be an \((n-1)\)-dimensional umbilic free hypersurface with non-zero principal curvatures in \(\mathbb {R}^n\), \(\mathbf B\) be the Laguerre second fundamental form, \(\mathbf L\) be the Laguerre tensor and \({\mathbf D}={\mathbf L}+\lambda {\mathbf B}\) be the para-Laguerre tensor of the immersion x, where \(\lambda \) is a constant. In this paper, we study the Laguerre isoparametric hypersurfaces, constant para-Laguerre eigenvalues hypersurfaces and Dupin hypersurfaces in \(\mathbb {R}^n\) and obtain some classification theorems.
