A locally conformally Kähler (l.c.K.) manifold is a complex manifold admitting a Kähler covering˜M , with each deck transformation acting by Kähler homotheties. A compact l.c.K. manifold is Vaisman if it admits a holomorphic flow acting by non-trivial homotheties oñ M. We prove a structure theorem for compact Vaisman manifolds. Every compact Vaisman(More)
A nilmanifold is a quotient of a nilpotent group G by a co-compact discrete subgroup. A complex nilmanifold is one which is equipped with a G-invariant complex structure. We prove that a complex nilmanifold has trivial canonical bundle. This is used to study hypercomplex nilmanifolds (nilmanifolds with a triple of G-invariant complex structures which(More)
We construct examples of compact hyperkähler manifolds with torsion (HKT manifolds) which are not homogeneous and not locally conformal hyperkähler. Consider a total space T of a tangent bundle over a hyperkähler manifold M. The manifold T is hypercomplex, but it is never hy-perkähler, unless M is flat. We show that T admits an HKT-structure. We also prove(More)
A locally conformally Kähler (LCK) manifold is a complex manifold admitting a Kähler covering˜M , with monodromy acting oñ M by Kähler homotheties. A compact LCK manifold is Vaisman if it admits a holomorphic flow acting by non-trivial homotheties oñ M. We prove that any compact Vaisman manifold admits a natural holomorphic immersion to a Hopf manifold (C n(More)
A hypercomplex manifold is a manifold equipped with a triple of complex structures I, J, K satisfying the quaternionic relations. We define a quaternionic analogue of plurisubharmonic functions on hy-percomplex manifolds, and interpret these functions geometrically as potentials of HKT (hyperkähler with torsion) metrics, and prove a quaternionic analogue of(More)
Let (M, I) be an almost complex 6-manifold. The obstruction to integrability of almost complex structure (so-called Nijenhuis tensor) N : Λ 0,1 (M) −→ Λ 2,0 (M) maps a 3-dimensional bundle to a 3-dimensional one. We say that Nijenhuis tensor is non-degenerate if it is an iso-morphism. An almost complex manifold (M, I) is called nearly Kähler if it admits a(More)
