ABSTRACT
In this paper, we prove that for every Riemannian Q-homological 3-sphere ( M, g) with injectivity radius $$inj(M)\ge \pi$$ and the sectional curvature K satisfying $${\frac{1}{16} < K \le 1}$$ there exist at least two geometrically distinct closed geodesics.

    We study the conditions under which the cotangent bundle T*M of a Riemannian manifold (M; g), endowed with a Kählerian structure (G; J) of general natural lift type (see [4]), is Einstein. We first obtain a general natural Kähler-Einstein structure on the cotangent bundle T*M. In this...

    It has been conjectured that if solutions to the Yamabe PDE on a smooth Riemannian manifold ( M n, g) blow-up at a point $${p \in M}$$ , then all derivatives of the Weyl tensor W g of g, of order less than or equal to $${[\frac{n-6}{2}]}$$ , vanish at $${p \in M}$$ . In this paper, we will...
