    A classical result of A. D. Alexandrov states that a connected compact smooth n-dimensional manifold without boundary, embedded in Rn+1, and such that its mean curvature is constant, is a sphere.

    We study foliations of space forms by complete hypersurfaces, under some mild conditions on its higher order mean curvatures. In particular, in Euclidean space we obtain a Bernstein-type theorem for graphs whose mean and scalar curvature do not change sign but may otherwise be nonconstant. We...

    A synchronization S on the space-time is a foliation by spacelike hypersurfaces. We study here the vector fields, tangent to S, which are Killing fields for the induced metric on every instant of S but which are not necessarily Killing fields of the whole space-time metric; they are called...

    Hypersurfaces of a Lorentz-Minkowski space Ln+1 with pointwise 1-type Gauss map are characterized. We prove that an oriented hypersurface Mq in Ln+1 has pointwise 1-type Gauss map of the first kind if and only if Mq has constant mean curvature and conclude that all oriented isoparametric...
