Naturally Reductive Metrics on Homogeneous Spaces

Recent work by [APZ] uses the computation of the Ricci curvature of naturally reductive metrics from D’Atri and Ziller to address the Prescribed Ricci Curvature problem on compact Lie groups. This project aims to further study naturally reductive metrics on different classes of homogeneous spaces and understanding the computations of the Ricci curvature of such metrics. Further, it aims to generalise the arguments in [AGP] to begin the computation of the Ricci curvature on more general classes of groups and homogeneous spaces.
