Realisation of holonomy algebras on pseudo-Riemannian manifolds by means of Manakov operators
thesisposted on 2013-06-11, 15:28 authored by Dragomir Tsonev
In the present thesis we construct a new class of holonomy algebras in pseudo-Riemannian geometry. Starting from a smooth connected manifold M, we consider its (1;1)-tensor fields acting on the tangent spaces. We then prove that there exists a class of pseudo- Riemannian metrics g on M such that the (1;1)-tensor fields are g-self adjoint and their centralisers in the Lie algebra so(g) are holonomy algebras for the Levi-Civita connection of g. Our construction is elaborated with the aid of Manakov operators and holds for any signature of the metric g.
