Ricci Solution in Kenmotsu Manifolds

H. G. Nagaraja, K Venu


In this paper we give characterisation of Ricci solitons in Ricci recurrent and φ-recurrent Kenmotsu manifolds based on the 1-form.Mathematical


Ricci solitons, Kenmotsu, φ-recurrent, concircular, pseudo-projective, Ricci recurrent, shrinking, expanding, steady.
