On submanifolds of Sasakian manifolds



The object of the present paper is to introduce a new type of invariant submanifolds, namely, mixed-invariant submanifolds of Sasakian manifolds and to show that everymixed-invariant submanifold of a Sasakian manifold is totally geodesic. 2-quasi-umbilical hypersurface of a Sasakian space form is also studied.
