An odd-dimensional Riemannian manifold is said
to be an almost co-Hermitian or almost contact metric manifold if there exist on a tensor field , a vector field (called the structure vector field) and 1-form such that
for any vector fields on
The Sasaki form (or fundamental 2-form) of an almost co-Hermitian manifold is defined by
for all on and this form satisfies This means that every almost co-Hermitian manifold is orientable and defines an almost cosymplectic structure on If this associated structure is cosymplectic , then is called an almost co-Kähler manifold. On the other hand, when , the associated almost cosymplectic structure is a contact structure and is an almost Sasakian manifold. It is well known every contact manifold has an almost Sasakian structure.
The Nijenhuis tensor of typetensor field is type defined by
where is the Lie bracket of
On the other hand, an almost co-complex structure is called integrable if and normal An integrable almost cocomplex structure is a cocomplex structure. A co-Kähler manifold (or normal cosymplectic manifold) is an integrable (or equivalently, a normal) almost co-Kähler manifold, while a Sasakian manifold is a normal almost contact metric manifold .

Definition 2.1. An almost manifold is an almost co-Hermitian manifold such that the Riemann curvature tensor satisfies the following property, such that
Moreover, if such a manifold has constant sectional curvature equal to , then its curvature tensor is given by
A normal almost manifold is said to be a manifold. For example, Co-Kählerian, Sasakian and Kenmotsu manifolds are and manifolds, respectively .

In this section, we will give the main results for this paper.
Let be a dimensional almost manifold and denote Riemannian curvature tensor of , then we have from (2.2), for
In the same way, choosing in (2.2), we have
In (3.2), choosing , we obtain
Also from (3.2), we obtain
From (2.2), we can state

From (3.7) we can give the following corollary.
Corollary 3.1. An almost manifold is always an Einstein manifold.
Also, from (3.6), we can easily see
Definition 3.1. Let be an dimensional Riemannian manifold. Then the Weyl concircular curvature tensor is defined by

Using (3.12) in (3.13), we obtain
Using (3.2), (3.3) and putting in (3.14), we get
Therefore, manifold has either sectional curvature or . This implies that
Theorem 3.2. Let be a dimensional an almost manifold. if and only if either has sectional curvature or the scalar curvature .

Using the equations (3.12) and (3.2), (3.3) in (3.15), we have
Putting in (3.16), we get
This tell us that has either sectional curvature or the scalar curvature .
The converse is obvious.
Theorem 3.3. Let be a dimensional an almost manifold. Then if and only if reduce an Einstein manifold.

Using (3.12) in (3.17), we get
Using (3.1), (3.9) in (3.18), we obtain
Putting in (3.19), we get

Therefore, the manifold is Einstein manifold.
The converse is obvious.
If is an Einstein manifold, the scalar curvature of is
By corresponding (3.8) and (3.20) we obtain which implies that is of constant sectional curvature
Definition 3.2. Let be a dimensional Riemannian manifold. Then Weyl projective curvature tensor is defined by

Taking inner product both sides of (3.23) by , we obtain
Also making use of (3.21), we obtain
Using (3.25) in (3.24) and choosing , we have provided that
So, the manifold is an Einstein manifold. The converse is obvious.
