Curvature of $K$contact SemiRiemannian Manifolds
In this paper we characterize $K$contact semiRiemannian manifolds
and Sasakian semiRiemannian manifolds in terms of
curvature. Moreover, we show that any conformally flat $K$contact
semiRiemannian 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.

On Some NonRiemannian Quantities in Finsler Geometry
In this paper we study several nonRiemannian quantities in Finsler
geometry. These nonRiemannian quantities play an important role in
understanding the geometric properties of Finsler metrics. In
particular, we study a new nonRiemannian quantity defined by the
Scurvature. We show some relationships among the flag curvature,
the Scurvature, and the new nonRiemannian quantity.

Randers Metrics of Constant Scalar Curvature
Randers metrics are a special class of Finsler metrics. Every Randers
metric can be expressed in terms of a Riemannian metric and a vector
field via Zermelo navigation.
In this paper, we show that a Randers metric has constant scalar
curvature if the Riemannian metric has constant scalar curvature and
the vector field is homothetic.

Evolution of Eigenvalues along Rescaled Ricci Flow
In this paper, we discuss monotonicity formulae of various entropy functionals under various
rescaled versions of Ricci flow. As an application, we prove that the lowest eigenvalue
of a family of geometric operators $4\Delta + kR$ is monotonic along the
normalized Ricci flow for all $k\ge 1$ provided the initial manifold has
nonpositive total scalar curvature.

Left Invariant EinsteinRanders Metrics on Compact Lie Groups
In this paper we study left invariant EinsteinRanders metrics on compact Lie
groups. First, we give a method to construct left invariant nonRiemannian EinsteinRanders metrics
on a compact Lie group, using the Zermelo navigation data.
Then we prove that this gives a complete classification of left invariant EinsteinRanders metrics on compact simple
Lie groups with the underlying Riemannian metric naturally reductive.
Further, we completely determine the identity component of the group of
isometries for this type of metrics on simple groups. Finally, we study some
geometric properties of such metrics. In particular, we give the formulae of geodesics and flag curvature
of such metrics.

Semiinvariant Submersions from Almost Hermitian Manifolds
We introduce semiinvariant Riemannian submersions from almost
Hermitian manifolds onto Riemannian manifolds. We give examples,
investigate the geometry of foliations that arise from the
definition of a Riemannian submersion, and find necessary sufficient
conditions for total manifold to be a locally product Riemannian
manifold. We also find necessary and sufficient conditions for a
semiinvariant submersion to be totally geodesic. Moreover, we
obtain a classification for semiinvariant submersions with totally
umbilical fibers and show that such submersions put some
restrictions on total manifolds.

Characterizations of Model Manifolds by Means of Certain Differential Systems
We prove metric rigidity for complete manifolds supporting solutions of
certain second order differential systems, thus extending classical works on a
characterization of spaceforms. Along the way, we also discover
new characterizations of spaceforms. We next generalize results concerning metric
rigidity via equations involving vector fields.

Central Extensions of Loop Groups and Obstruction to PreQuantization
An explicit construction of a prequantum line bundle for the moduli
space of flat $G$bundles over a Riemann surface is given, where $G$
is any nonsimply connected compact simple Lie group. This work helps
to explain a curious coincidence previously observed between
Toledano Laredo's work classifying central extensions of loop groups
$LG$ and the author's previous work on the obstruction to
prequantization of the moduli space of flat $G$bundles.

First Variation Formula in Wasserstein Spaces over Compact Alexandrov Spaces
We extend results proved by the second author (Amer. J. Math., 2009)
for nonnegatively curved Alexandrov spaces
to general compact Alexandrov spaces $X$ with curvature bounded
below.
The gradient flow of a geodesically convex functional on the quadratic Wasserstein
space $(\mathcal P(X),W_2)$ satisfies the evolution variational inequality.
Moreover, the gradient flow enjoys uniqueness and contractivity.
These results are obtained by proving a first variation formula for
the Wasserstein distance.

\int_S e^{2u} \,ds^2 \leq 4\pi(\beta+1) \exp \biggl\{
\frac{1}{4\pi(\beta+1)} \int_S \nabla u^2 \,ds^2 +
\frac{1}{2\pi(\beta+1)} \int_S u \,ds^2 \biggr\}

Chen Inequalities for Submanifolds of Real Space Forms with a SemiSymmetric NonMetric Connection
In this paper we prove Chen inequalities for submanifolds of real space
forms endowed with a semisymmetric nonmetric connection, i.e., relations
between the mean curvature associated with a semisymmetric nonmetric
connection, scalar and sectional curvatures, Ricci curvatures and the
sectional curvature of the ambient space. The equality cases are considered.

A Note on Randers Metrics of Scalar Flag Curvature
Some families of Randers metrics of scalar flag curvature are
studied in this paper. Explicit examples that are neither locally
projectively flat nor of isotropic $S$curvature are given. Certain
Randers metrics with Einstein $\alpha$ are considered and proved to
be complex. Three dimensional Randers manifolds, with $\alpha$
having constant scalar curvature, are studied.

An Isospectral Deformation on an InfranilOrbifold
We construct a Laplace isospectral deformation of metrics on an
orbifold quotient of a nilmanifold. Each orbifold in the deformation
contains singular points with order two isotropy. Isospectrality is
obtained by modifying a generalization of Sunada's theorem due to
DeTurck and Gordon.
