To see this first note that the tangent space to the orbit of g under the action of S at g is the set of tensor fields of the form £xg where X is a symplectic vector field. 5) Xi = Jikek for some closed 1-form 0. 7. 1 we considered R2n+1 with its usual contact structure dz 1 yidxi and saw that the contact subbundle D is spanned by -mL +y2 a y;, i = 1 ... n. For normalization convenience, we take as the standard contact structure on R2n+1 the 1-form 77 = 2 (dz - E2 1 yidxi). The characteristic vector field is then = 2-2- and the Riemannian metric ii ((dxi)2+(dyi)2) i=1 gives a contact metric structure on R2n+1.

2 for details). 5 T*M X R Let M be an n-dimensional manifold and T*M its cotangent bundle. As in the previous example we can define a 1-form Q by the local expression Y 1 pidgi. Let Men+1 = T*M x R, t the coordinate on R and y : Men+1 T*M the projection to the first factor. 6 T3 We have mentioned that Martinet proved that every compact orientable 3manifold carries a contact structure. Here we will give explicitly a contact structure on the 3-dimensional torus V. First consider R3 with the contact form 77 = sin ydx + cos ydz; i7 A dry = -dx A dy A dz.

G(X, JY) _ -g(JX, Y), S2(X, Y) = g(X, JY) defines a 2-form called the fundamental 2form of the almost Hermitian structure (M, J, g). If M is a complex manifold and J the corresponding almost complex structure, we say that (M, J, g) is a Hermitian manifold. If df = 0, the structure is almost Kdhler. For geometers working strictly over the complex domain, a Hermitian metric is a Hermitian quadratic form and hence complex-valued; it takes its non-zero values as appropriate when one argument is holomorphic and the other anti-holomorphic.
