Is there any example of a manifold with a positive isotropic curvature but it possibly obtains a negative Ricci curvature at some point and the direction? If we see the definition of the positive isotropic curvature condition, it doesn't imply the positivity of the Ricci curvature (it is true if $(M\times \mathbb{R},g+dr^2)$ has a positive isotropic curvature, but it is stronger condition than the original one). But I've not heard about the example of this case.

Here are more details. The reference I used is [Simon Brendle - *Ricci flow and the sphere theorem*] but you can also find it from https://arxiv.org/abs/0705.0766.

$R$ is said to have a positive isotropic curvature if it satisfies $R_{ikki}+R_{illi}+R_{jkkj}+R_{jllj}-2R_{ijkl}>0$ for all orthonormal 4-frame $\{e_i,e_j,e_k,e_l\}$. If we take a sum for all $i, j, k, l$, we can see that it implies the positivity of scalar curvature on $M$.

Also, we can observe that $(M\times \mathbb{R},g+dr^2)$ has a positive isotropic curvature if and only if the curvature $R$ of $g$ satisfies $R_{ikki}+\lambda^2R_{illi}+R_{jkkj}+\lambda^2R_{jllj}-2\lambda R_{ijkl}>0$ for all orthonormal 4-frame $\{e_i,e_j,e_k,e_l\}$ on $M$ and for all $\lambda \in [0,1]$. After taking $\lambda=0$, we can see it implies the positivity of Ricci curvature on $M$.

As it is mentioned in Richard Hamilton’s paper https://www.intlpress.com/site/pub/files/_fulltext/journals/cag/1997/0005/0001/CAG-1997-0005-0001-a001.pdf, $S^4, S^3\times \mathbb{R}$ have a positive isotropic curvature and $S^2\times S^2, S^2\times \mathbb{R}^2, \mathbb{C}P^2$ are the example of manifolds with nonnegative isotropic curvature.

There is a topological restriction of having a positive isotropic curvature metric. For example, Micallef and Moore proved that a compact, simply connected manifold with positive isotropic curvature is homeomorphic to $S^n$.

In 2007, Simon Brendle and Richard Schoen proved the differentiable sphere theorem using this curvature condition and the Ricci flow(as proved by Simon Brendle, these conditions are preserved under the Ricci flow).
