Isotropic Submanifolds of Real Space Forms Kim, Young-Ho;
We study some functions defined on the unit tangent space, which are formed with the second fundamental form of submanifolds of a real space form. These give an exact expression of isotropy of submanifolds in a real space form and a relationship between intrinsic invariants and extrinsic ones.
