Nearly Kahler geometry and (2, 3, 5)-distributions via projective holonomy

Gover, Rod; Panai, R; Willse, T


We show that any dimension-6 nearly Kahler (or nearly para-Kahler) geometry arises as a projective manifold equipped with a G2(*) holonomy reduction. In the converse direction, we show that if a projective manifold is equipped with a parallel seven-dimensional cross product on its standard tractor bundle, then the manifold is a Riemannian nearly Kahler manifold, if the cross product is definite; otherwise, if the cross product has the other algebraic type, the manifold is in general stratified...[Show more]
