In this article, we study Jacobi-type vector fields on Riemannian manifolds. A Killing vector field is a Jacobi-type vector field while the converse is not true, leading to a natural question of finding conditions under which a Jacobi-type vector field is Killing. In this article, we first prove that every Jacobi-type vector field on a compact Riemannian manifold is Killing. Then, we find several necessary and sufficient conditions for a Jacobi-type vector field to be a Killing vector field on non-compact Riemannian manifolds. Further, we derive some characterizations of Euclidean spaces in terms of Jacobi-type vector fields. Finally, we provide examples of Jacobi-type vector fields on non-compact Riemannian manifolds, which are non-Killing. View Full-Text
