Calabi–Yau theorem and complex Monge–Ampère equation for transversally Kähler manifolds

Let $M$ be a compact smooth manifold, and $F\subset TM$ a smooth foliation. It is called transversally Kähler if the normal bundle $TM/F$ is equipped with a Hermitian structure (that is, a complex ...

Spin structures on Sasakian manifolds and the Kähler analogy

A Sasakian manifold is often said to be the odd dimensional analogue of a Kähler manifold. Now for a $2n$-dimensional Kähler manifold we know from Atiyah that it is spin exactly if the line bundle $\...
