Abstract.We give a full classification of higher order parallel surfaces in three-dimensional homogeneous spaces with four-dimensional isometry group, i.e., in the so-called Bianchi–Cartan–Vranceanu family. This gives a positive answer to a conjecture formulated in [2]. As a partial result, we prove that totally umbilical surfaces only exist if the ambient Bianchi–Cartan–Vranceanu space is a Riemannian product of a surface of constant Gaussian curvature and the real line, and we give a local… Expand
Geometry of extended Bianchi–Cartan–Vranceanu spaces
The differential geometry of three-dimensional Bianchi, Cartan and Vranceanu (BCV) spaces is well known. We introduce the extended Bianchi, Cartan and Vranceanu (EBCV) spaces as a natural sevenExpand
Parallel mean curvature surfaces in four-dimensional homogeneous spaces
We survey different classification results for surfaces with parallel mean curvature immersed into some Riemannian homogeneous four-manifolds, including real and complex space forms, and productExpand
Associated Families of Surfaces in Warped Products and Homogeneous Spaces

Totally umbilical hypersurfaces of manifolds admitting a unit Killing field
We prove that a Riemannian product of type M x R (where R denotes the Euclidean line) admits totally umbilical hypersurfaces if and only if M has locally the structure of a warped product and we giveExpand

We study Legendre and slant curves for Bianchi-Cartan-Vranceanu metrics. These curves are characterized through the scalar product between the normal at the curve and the vertical vector field and inExpand
Hypersurfaces with a parallel higher fundamental form
By a “higher fundamental form” of a hypersurface is understood a form obtained by inserting a power of the shape operator into the first fundamental form. The hypersurfaces in a Riemannian space formExpand
