Cyclic Hypersurfaces of Constant Curvature

Rafael López

Full-text: Open access


We study hypersurfaces in Euclidean, hyperbolic or Lorentz-Minkowski space with the property that it is foliated by a one-parameter family of round spheres. We describe partially such hypersurfaces with some assumption on its curvature. In general, we shall consider the situation that the mean curvature or the Gaussian curvature is constant.
