On compact Einstein doubly warped product manifolds

Punam Gupta


In this paper, the non-existence of connected, compact Einstein doubly warped product semi-Riemannian manifold with non-positive scalar curvature is proved. It is also shown that there does not exist non-trivial connected Einstein doubly warped product semi-Riemannian manifold with compact base $B$ or fibre $F$.
