Quasi-Special Osserman Manifolds

Vladica Andrejić

In this paper we deal with a pseudo-Riemannian Osserman curvature tensor whose reduced Jacobi operator is diagonalizable with exactly two distinct eigenvalues. The main result gives new insight into the theory of the duality principle for pseudo-Riemannian Osserman manifolds. We concern with special Osserman curvature tensor and propose new ways to exclude some additional duality principle conditions from its definition.
