Consider a compact Lie group G and a closed Lie subgroup $$H<G$$ H < G . Let $${\mathcal {M}}$$ M be the set of G -invariant Riemannian metrics on the homogeneous space $$M=G/H$$ M = G / H . By studying variational properties of the scalar curvature functional on $${\mathcal {M}}$$ M , we obtain an existence theorem for solutions to the prescribed Ricci curvature problem on M . To illustrate the applicability of this result, we explore cases where M is a generalised Wallach space and a…
