We introduce the concept of a base conformal warped product of two pseudo-Riemannian manifolds. We also define a subclass of this structure called as a special base conformal warped product. After, we explicitly mention many of the relevant fields where metrics of these forms and also considerations about their curvature related properties play important rolls. Among others, we cite general relativity, extra-dimension, string and super-gravity theories as physical subjects and also the study of… 

About curvature, conformal metrics and warped products

We consider the curvature of a family of warped products of two pseduo-Riemannian manifolds (B, gB) and (F, gF) furnished with metrics of the form c2gB ⊕ w2gF and, in particular, of the type w2μgB ⊕

Warped product space-times

Many classical results in relativity theory concerning spherically symmetric space-times have easy generalizations to warped product space-times, with a two-dimensional Lorentzian base and arbitrary

Sequential warped products: Curvature and conformal vector fields

In this note, we introduce a new type of warped products called as sequential warped products to cover a wider variety of exact solutions to Einstein?s field equation. First, we study the geometry

Investigation on some classes of warped product manifolds

In the literature we see that after introducing a geometric structure by imposing some restrictions on Riemann–Christoffel curvature tensor, the same type structures given by imposing same

On the classification of warped product Einstein metrics

The question of when an Einstein metric can be written as a warped product is posed in the text Einstein metrics by Besse. Recently, there have been some interesting results about these spaces found

Smooth metric measure spaces and quasi-Einstein metrics

Smooth metric measure spaces have been studied from the two different perspectives of Bakry-\'Emery and Chang-Gursky-Yang, both of which are closely related to work of Perelman on the Ricci flow.

On a certain type of warped-twisted product submanifolds

: We introduce a certain type of warped-twisted product submanifolds which is called warped-twisted product hemislant submanifolds of the form f 2 M ⊥ × f 1 M θ with warping function f 2 on M θ and

The tetralogy of Birkhoff theorems

We classify the existent Birkhoff-type theorems into four classes: first, in field theory, the theorem states the absence of helicity 0- and spin 0-parts of the gravitational field. Second, in

Warped-twisted product semi-slant submanifolds

We introduce the notion of warped-twisted product semi-slant submanifolds of the form f2MT?f1 M? with warping function f2 on M? and twisting function f1, where MT is a holomorphic and M? is a slant



Metrics of negative Ricci curvature

One of the most natural and important topics in Riemannian geometry is the relation between curvature and global structure of the underlying manifold. For instance, complete manifolds of negative

Bi-conformal vector fields and their applications

We introduce a concept of bi-conformal transformation, as a generalization of conformal ones, by allowing two orthogonal parts of a manifold with metric g to be scaled by different conformal factors.

Conformal deformation of a Riemannian metric to constant scalar curvature

A well-known open question in differential geometry is the question of whether a given compact Riemannian manifold is necessarily conformally equivalent to one of constant scalar curvature. This

Supersymmetric AdS5 solutions of M-theory

We analyse the most general supersymmetric solutions of D = 11 supergravity consisting of a warped product of five-dimensional anti-de Sitter space with a six-dimensional Riemannian space M6, with


The warped product N1 f N2 of two Riemannian manifolds (N1; g1) and (N2; g2) with warping function f is the product manifold N1 N2 equipped with the warped product metric g1+f 2 g2, where f is a

Constant scalar curvatures on warped product manifolds

In a recent study [D.D.], F. Dobarro and E. L. Dozo have studied from the viewpoint of partialdifferentialequations and variational methods, the problem of showing when a Riemannian metric of

Twisted products in pseudo-Riemannian geometry

Twisted products are generalizations of warped products, namely the warping function may depend on the points of both factors. The two canonical foliations of a twisted product are mutually

The Yamabe problem on manifolds with boundary

A natural question in differential geometry is whether a given compact Riemannian manifold with boundary is necessarily conformally equivalent to one of constant scalar curvature, where the boundary

In this paper a thorough study of the normal form and the first integrability conditions arising from {\em bi-conformal vector fields} is presented. These new symmetry transformations were introduced

Warped geometry in higher dimensions with an orbifold extra dimension

We solve the Einstein equations in higher dimensions with warped geometry where an extra dimension is assumed to have orbifold symmetry $S^{1}/Z_{2}$. The setup considered here is an extension of the
