Isotropic sections and curvature properties of hyperbolic Kaehlerian manifolds. (English) Zbl 0587.53026
The authors prove a series of theorems relating to the sectional curvature of a so-called hyperbolic Kählerian manifold, i.e. a pseudo- Riemannian manifold (M,g) with a parallel (1,1)-tensor field P satisfying the conditions \[ P^ 2=I,\quad g(PX,PY)+g(X,Y)=0. \] In particular they give characterizations of such spaces of constant holomorphic sectional curvature and of Bochner flat spaces and they also consider the axioms of 2-planes. They follow closely the methods for the case of Kähler manifolds but here the theorems are slightly more complicated because of the existence of different kind of plane sections.
