Geodesible contact structures on 3-manifolds

By Patrick Massot

Abstract

In this paper, we study and almost completely classify contact structures on closed 3–manifolds which are totally geodesic for some Riemannian metric. Due to previously known results, this amounts to classifying contact structures on Seifert manifolds which are transverse to the fibers. Actually, we obtain the complete classification of contact structures with negative (maximal) twisting number (which includes the transverse ones) on Seifert manifolds whose base is not a sphere, as well as partial results in the spherical case
