#### Abstract

The object of this paper is to study invariant submanifolds of Sasakian manifolds admitting a semisymmetric nonmetric connection, and it is shown that *M* admits semisymmetric nonmetric connection. Further it is proved that the second fundamental forms
and with respect to Levi-Civita connection and semi-symmetric nonmetric connection coincide. It is shown that if the second fundamental form is recurrent, 2-recurrent, generalized 2-recurrent, semiparallel, pseudoparallel, and Ricci-generalized pseudoparallel and *M* has parallel third fundamental form with respect to semisymmetric nonmetric connection, then *M* is totally geodesic with respect to Levi-Civita connection.

#### 1. Semisymmetric Nonmetric Connection

The geometry of invariant submanifolds of Sasakian manifolds is carried out from 1970βs by M. Kon [1], D. Chinea [2], K. Yano and M. Kon [3] and B.S. Anitha and C.S. Bagewadi [4]. The aurthor [1] has proved that invariant submanifold of Sasakian structure also carries Sasakian structure. In this paper we extend the results to invariant submanifolds of Sasakian manifolds admitting Semisymmetric Nonmetric connection.

We know that a connection on a manifold is called a metric connection if there is a Riemannian metric on if ; otherwise it is Nonmetric. Further it is said to be Semisymmetric if its torsion tensor , where is a 1-form. A study of Semisymmetric connection on a Riemannian manifold was initiated by Yano [5]. In 1992, Agashe and Chafle [6] introduced the notion of Semisymmetric Nonmetric connection. If denotes Semisymmetric Nonmetric connection on a contact metric manifold, then it is given by [6] where .

The covariant differential of the th order, of a -tensor field denoted by , defined on a Riemannian manifold with the Levi-Civita connection . The tensor is said to be *recurrent* [7], if the following condition holds on :
respectively.

Consider where . From (1.2) it follows that at a point , if the tensor is nonzero, then there exists a unique -form , respectively, a -tensor , defined on a neighborhood of such that respectively.

The following
holds on , where denotes the norm of and . The tensor is said to be *generalized *2*-recurrent* if
holds on , where is a -form on . From this it follows that at a point if the tensor is nonzero, then there exists a unique -tensor , defined on a neighborhood of , such that
holds on .

#### 2. Isometric Immersion

Let be an isometric immersion from an -dimensional Riemannian manifold into -dimensional Riemannian manifold , , . We denote and as Levi-Civita connection of and , respectively. Then the formulas of Gauss and Weingarten are given by
for any tangent vector fields and the normal vector field on , where , , and are the second fundamental form, the shape operator, and the normal connection, respectively. If the second fundamental form is identically zero, then the manifold is said to be *totally geodesic*. The second fundamental form and is related by
for tangent vector fields . The first and second covariant derivatives of the second fundamental form are given by
respectively, where is called the *van der Waerden-Bortolotti connection* of [8]. If , then is said to have *parallel second fundamental form* [8]. We next define endomorphisms and of by
respectively, where and is a symmetric -tensor.

Now, for a -tensor field and a -tensor field on , we define the tensor by Putting into consideration the previous formula β and ,β we obtain the tensors and .

#### 3. Sasakian Manifolds

An -dimensional differential manifold is said to have an almost contact structure if it carries a tensor field of type , a vector field , and 1-form on , respectively, such that

Thus a manifold equipped with this structure is called an almost contact manifold and is denoted by . If is a Riemannian metric on an almost contact manifold such that where are vector fields defined on , then is said to have an almost contact metric structure , and with this structure is called an almost contact metric manifold and is denoted by .

If on the exterior derivative of 1-form satisfies then is said to be a contact metric structure and together with manifold is called contact metric manifold and is a 2-form. The contact metric structure is said to be normal if

If the contact metric structure is normal, then it is called a Sasakian structure and is called a Sasakian manifold. Note that an almost contact metric manifold defines Sasakian structure if and only if

*Example of Sasakian Manifold*

Consider the -dimensional manifold , where are the standard coordinates in . Let be linearly independent global frame field on given by

#### 4. Invariant Submanifolds of Sasakian Manifolds Admitting Semisymmetric Nonmetric Connection

If is a Sasakian manifold with structure tensors , then we know that its invariant submanifold has the induced Sasakian structure .

A submanifold of a Sasakian manifold with a Semisymmetric Nonmetric connection is called an invariant submanifold of with a Semisymmetric Nonmetric connection, if for each , . As a consequence, becomes tangent to . For an invariant submanifold of a Sasakian manifold with a Semisymmetric Nonmetric connection we have for any vector tangent to .
