Bochner flat Kählerian manifolds with a certain condition on the Ricci tensor. (English) Zbl 0629.53059
Let M be a Bochner flat Kähler manifold. For the Ricci tensor \(\rho\) of M, the condition \((*)\quad R\cdot \sigma =fR^ 1\cdot \rho\) is studied, R being the curvature operator, f a function and \[ R^ 1_{XY}=X\wedge Y+(JX)\wedge (JY)-2g(JX,Y)J \] for X,Y\(\in {\mathcal X}(M)\). Among other things, it is proved that the condition (*) is fulfilled on M iff \(\rho\) has at most two distinct eigenvalues. It is also shown that if M is compact, dim \(M\geq 6\) and M satisfies the condition (*) with \(f\leq 0\), then M is locally symmetric. All currently known Bochner flat Kählerian manifolds satisfy the condition.
