On The Ricci Symmetry of Almost Kenmotsu Manifolds
Keywords:Almost Kenmotsu manifolds, Ricci symmetric manifolds, Einstein manifold, Sectional curvature
In the present paper, we characterize Ricci symmetric almost Kenmotsu manifolds under several constraints and proved that they are Einstein manifolds. As a consequence, we obtain several corollaries. Finally, an illustrative example is presented to verify our results.
