Metallic structures on Riemannian manifolds. (English) Zbl 1302.53021

Summary: Our aim in this paper is to focus on some applications in differential geometry of the metallic means family (a generalization of the golden mean) and generalized Fibonacci sequences, using a class of polynomial structures defined on Riemannian manifolds. We search for properties of the induced structure on a submanifold by metallic Riemannian structures and we find a necessary and sufficient condition for a submanifold to be also a metallic Riemannian manifold in terms of invariance. Also, the totally geodesic, minimal and respectively totally umbilical hypersurfaces in metallic Riemannian manifolds are analyzed and the Euclidean space and its hypersphere is treated as example.
