A construction of non-flat non-homogeneous symmetric parabolic geometries. (English) Zbl 1389.53023
In previous works, there are several constructions of symmetric parabolic geometries.
Using these constructions, one can obtain in particular:
-
symmetric parabolic geometries with semisimple group \(G\);
-
flat and non-flat homogeneous symmetric parabolic geometries on homogeneous fiber bundles over symmetric spaces;
-
flat non-homogeneous symmetric parabolic geometries which are not related to symmetric spaces;
-
non-flat homogeneous symmetric parabolic geometries on a product of a flat model of a different (non-effective) type of parabolic geometry and a homogeneous space of a nilpotent Lie group.
In a previous work, the present authors proved a simple necessary and sufficient condition for the existence of symmetric parabolic geometries. It was also shown in another work that all non-homogeneous symmetric conformal geometries are flat.
In the present paper, using the combination of methods from previous works, the two series of non-flat non-homogeneous symmetric parabolic geometries are constructed and described in detail.
