Abstract

We introduce the notion of strongly k-disk homogeneous apace and establish a characterization theorem. More specifically, we prove that any analytic Riemannian manifold (M,g) of dimension n which is strongly k-disk homogeneous with 2$\leq$k$\leq$n-1 is a space of constant curvature. Its K hler analog is obtained. The total mean curvature homogeneity of geodesic sphere in k-disk is also considered.
