Local classification and examples of an important class of paracontact metric manifolds

Veronica Martin-Molina


We study paracontact metric $(\kappa,\mu)$-spaces with $\kappa=-1$, equivalent to $h^2=0$ but not $h=0$. In particular, we will give an alternative proof of Theorem~3.2 of [Martin-Molina2014] and present examples of paracontact metric $(-1,2)$-spaces and $(-1,0)$-spaces of arbitrary dimension with tensor $h$ of every possible constant rank. We will also show explicit examples of paracontact metric $(-1, \mu)$-spaces with tensor $h$ of non-constant rank, which were not known to exist until now.
