A 3-manifold is said to be a geometric manifold if it is a -manifold for a 3-dimensional model geometry. Theorem 2.

Case Then has constant sectional curvature. The Cartan Theorem implies that up to rescaling is isometric to one of. Let be the -invariant vector field such that, for each , the direction of is the rotation axis of.

## C3.3 Differentiable Manifolds (2016-2017)

In our setting this implies that the flow of acts by isometries. Hence the flowlines define a 1-dimensional foliation with embedded leaves. The quotient is a 2-dimensional manifold, which inherits a Riemannian metric such that acts transitively by isometries. Thus has constant curvature and is up to rescaling isometric to one of.

Case 2a: is a foliation. Thus is a flat bundle over. Case 2b: is a contact structure.

What is a manifold?

For one would obtain for the group of isometries of that preserve the Hopf fibration. This is not a maximal group with compact stabilizers, thus there is no model geometry in this case.
