"Riemannian Submersions and the O'Neill Tensors"

In an introductory Riemannian geometry course, one typically encounters the Euler, Gauss, and Codazzi equations, which relate the curvature of a submanifold to the curvature of the ambient manifold via the second fundamental form. The O'Neill equations are analogous equations for the case of a Riemannian submersion.

In this talk we define Riemannian submersions and discuss the Fubini Study metric on $CP^n$ as an example. We also consider a vector bundle $E$ over a Riemannian manifold $(M,g)$ where the $E$ is endowed with a Riemannian metric induced from a fibre metric on $E$, a connection on $E$, and the Riemannian metric $g$ on $M$, such that the projection is a Riemannian submersion. The O'Neill tensors are defined, and we state the fundamental equations. We determine the O'Neill tensors of the Fubini-Study metric and the Riemannian metric on $E$. The O'Neill tensors are then applied to show that the sectional curvature of the Fubini-Study metric is bounded between 1 and 4.
