Differential Geometry of Lightlike Submanifolds

This is the first systematic account of the main results in the theory of lightlike submanifolds of semi-Riemannian manifolds which have a geometric structure, such as almost Hermitian, almost contact metric or quaternion Kähler. Using these structures, the book presents interesting classes of subma...
