Levi-parallel hypersurfaces in a complex space form. (English) Zbl 1131.53025
Let \(M\) be a Hopf hypersurface of a complex space form of constant holomorphic sectional curvature \(c\neq 0\), i.e., its structure vector is a principal curvature vector. In 1999 the author defined the generalized Tanaka-Webster connection for real hypersurfaces in Kählerian manifolds [Publ. Math. 54, No. 3–4, 473–487 (1999; Zbl 0929.53029)]. The main theorem of the present paper classifies all real Hopf hypersurfaces of a complex space form, \(c\neq 0\), whose Levi form is parallel with respect to the generalized Tanaka-Webster connection.
