Hypersurfaces of the homogeneous nearly Kähler \(\mathbb{S}^6\) and \(\mathbb{S}^3\times\mathbb{S}^3\) with anticommutative structure tensors. (English) Zbl 1433.53028

Summary: Each hypersurface of a nearly Kähler manifold is naturally equipped with two tensor fields of \((1,1)\)-type, namely the shape operator \(A\) and the induced almost contact structure \(\phi \). In this paper, we show that, in the homogeneous nearly Kähler \(\mathbb{S}^6\) a hypersurface satisfies the condition \(A\phi+\phi A=0\) if and only if it is totally geodesic; moreover, similar as for the non-flat complex space forms, the homogeneous nearly Kähler manifold \(\mathbb{S}^3\times\mathbb{S}^3\) does not admit a hypersurface that satisfies the condition \(A\phi+\phi A=0\).
