 Curvature of $K$-contact Semi-Riemannian Manifolds In this paper we characterize $K$-contact semi-Riemannian manifolds and Sasakian semi-Riemannian manifolds in terms of curvature. Moreover, we show that any conformally flat $K$-contact semi-Riemannian manifold is Sasakian and of constant sectional curvature $\kappa=\varepsilon$, where $\varepsilon =\pm 1$ denotes the causal character of the Reeb vector field. Finally, we give some results about the curvature of a $K$-contact Lorentzian manifold. Keywords:contact semi-Riemannian structures, $K$-contact structures, conformally flat manifolds, Einstein Lorentzian-Sasaki manifoldsCategories:53C50, 53C25, 53B30
