(p.51) Chapter 2 Foliations
Sasakian Geometry

Charles P. Boyer

Krzysztof Galicki

Oxford University Press

As Sasakian manifolds are all examples of Riemannian foliations with one-dimensional leaves, this chapter goes into the world of foliations with a particular focus on the Riemannian case. Haeiger structures, leaf holonomy, the holonomy groupoid, and basic cohomology are introduced, focusing on the transverse geometry of Riemannian foliations, in particular, Riemannian ows. Certain invariants such as the toral rank are introduced.

Keywords:   Riemannian foliations, Haeiger structures, basic cohomology, leaf holonomy, holonomy groupoid, transverse geometry, Riemannian ows, toral rank
