The notion of slant submanifold was generalized by semislant submanifold, pseudo-slant submanifold, and bi-slant submanifold, respectively, in different types of differentiable manifolds. The semi-slant submanifold of almost Hermitian manifold was introduced by N.

They cover differentiable manifolds, Finsler metrics, connections and curvatures, S-curvature, Riemann curvature, projective changes, comparison theorems, fundamental groups of Finsler manifolds, minimal immersions and harmonic maps, Einstein metrics, and miscellaneous topics.

An n-dimensional differentiable manifolds [M.sup.n] is a Lorentzian Para-Sasakian manifolds(briefly LP-Sasakian manifolds) if it admits a (1,1) tensor field [phi], contravariant vector field [xi], a covariant vector field [eta], and a Lorentzian metric g, which satisfy
Our approach is based on the following sampling existence theorem for differentiable manifolds that was recently presented and applied in the context of Image Processing ([47], [48]) (1):
Indeed, let N and M be two differentiable manifolds and x: N [right arrow] M be a differentiable submanifold map.
