Peer-reviewed mathematics journal “Chinese Annals of Mathematics, Series B” publishes BSU scientists’ paper
A scientific paper “Metrics and connections on the bundle of affinor frames” by Professor Arif Selimov, Department of Algebra and Geometry, Faculty of Mechanics and Mathematics, Baku State University (BSU) co-authored by Associate Professor Habil Fattayev, Department of Algebra and Geometry, Faculty of Mechanics and Mathematics, BSU was published in “Chinese Annals of Mathematics, Series B” (https://www.springer.com/journal/11401).
In this paper the authors consider the bundle of affinor frames over a smooth manifold, define the Sasaki metric on this bundle, and investigate the Levi-Civita connection of Sasaki metric. Also the authors determine the horizontal lifts of symmetric linear connection from a manifold to the bundle of affinor frames and study the geodesic curves corresponding to the horizontal lift of the linear connection.
