On $f$-Kenmotsu manifolds admitting Schouten-Van Kampen connection

Main Article Content

Ashis Mondal


In the present paper, we study three-dimensional $f$-Kenmotsu manifolds admitting the Schouten-Van Kampen connection. We study the concircular curvature tensor of a three-dimensional $f$-Kenmotsu manifold with respect to the Schouten-Van Kampen connection. Finally, we have cited an example of a three-dimensional $f$-Kenmotsu manifold admitting Schouten-Van Kampen connection which verify our results.
