Einstein metrics via intrinsic or parallel torsion. (English) Zbl 1069.53041
This article is devoted to the classification of Riemannian manifolds by the holonomy group of their Levi-Civita connection. The authors consider all \(G\)-structures on Riemannian manifolds with non-trivial intrinsic torsion. They impose various extra conditions on the \(G\)-structure and its intrinsic torsion to obtain Einstein metric. As a result, the classification of isolated examples that are isotropy irreducible spaces and the classification of known families that are nearly Kähler \(G\)-manifolds and Gray’s weak holonomy \(G_2\)-structures in dimension 7 are given.
