Warped Product Pointwise Semi-Slant Submanifolds of Sasakian Manifolds

Ion Mihai, Siraj Uddin, Adela Mihai

Recently, B.-Y. Chen and O. J. Garay studied pointwise slant submanifolds of almost Hermitian manifolds. By using the notion of pointwise slant submanifolds, we investigate the geometry of pointwise semi-slant submanifolds and their warped products in Sasakian manifolds. We give non-trivial examples of such submanifolds and obtain several fundamental results, including a characterization for warped product pointwise semi-slant submanifolds of Sasakian manifolds.
