On weakly concircular symmetric spaces. (English) Zbl 1082.53021
Summary: The object of this paper is to establish an example of a weakly symmetric space. Some results on a $$(WZS)_n$$ are established and it is shown that if a $$(WZS)_n$$ is a decomposable space $$V^r\times V^{n-r}$$ ($$r>1$$, $$n-r>1$$), then one of the decomposition spaces is flat and the other is a pseudo symmetric space. Later, the Ricci-associate of the vector field $$\lambda_i$$ is defined and some theorems relating to it are proved.
