A non-flat Riemannian space () is called a weakly symmetric space, if
where are 1-forms (non-zero simultaneously) [L. Tamassy and T. Q. Binh, Differential geometry and its applications, Prog. Eger 1989, Colloq. Math. Soc. J. Bolyai 56, 663-670 (1992; Zbl 0791.53021)]. If here , , then is called pseudo symmetric [M. C. Chaki, An. Şţiint. Univ. Al. I. Cuza Iaşi, N. Ser., Secţ. Ia 33, No. 1, 53-58 (1987; Zbl 0626.53037)]. An example is constructed: the metric in () given by , where run over , the matrix of is symmetric and non-singular of constants, and is a function of [see W. Roter, Colloq. Math. 31, 87-96, 97-105 (1974; Zbl 0292.53014, Zbl 0295.53014)]. It is proved that if a totally umbilic hypersurface of a weakly symmetric space is a weakly symmetric space then it is a pseudo symmetric space. A necessary and sufficient condition for a totally umbilic hypersurface of a pseudo symmetric space to be pseudo symmetric is obtained. Similar results are obtained for pseudo Ricci symmetric spaces. Also some properties of the Chebyshev and geodesic nets in the hypersurface of these spaces are found.
