Abstract

For two arbitrary complementary orthogonal distributions T1 and T2 on TM, we define the structural tensors B1 : T2 × T1T1 and B2 : T1 × T2T2 by the following formulas:
$$ B_1 \left( {y,x} \right) = P_1 \left( {\nabla _x y} \right),{\text{ }}B_2 \left( {x,y} \right) = P_2 \left( {\nabla _y x} \right), $$
(2.1)
were P i : TMT i (i = 1, 2) are orthoprojectors.
