On the canonical Hermitian connection in nearly Kähler manifolds. (English) Zbl 1180.53071

Summary: We prove that the Hermitian curvature tensor \(\tilde R\) associated to a nearly Kähler metric \(g\) always satisfies the second Bianchi identity \(\mathfrak S(\tilde \nabla _X \tilde R)(Y, Z, \cdot , \cdot )=0\) and that it satisfies the first Bianchi identity \(\mathfrak S \tilde R(X, Y, Z, \cdot )=0\) if and only if \(g\) is a Kähler metric. Furthermore we give a condition for \(\tilde R\) to be parallel with respect to the canonical Hermitian connection \(\tilde \nabla\) in terms of the Riemann curvature tensor and in the last part of the paper we study the curvature of some generalizations of the nearly Kähler structure.
